Veve traces the history of the 1815-1818 occupation and the significant role that Wellington played in making the first multinational peacekeeping force a success. He explores the decisions made and procedures established by the Duke, and demonstrates that Wellington's command was not simply the final chapter in a successful military career, but rather an important transition to his future political endeavors.
