Now she's thrown shade on Wellington. Oh, the horror!Historian Lucy Worsley says the Battle of Waterloo was a victory for Europe, it’s time this broadside at Wellington’s triumph met its Waterloo"It was Napoleon who fought for ‘Europe’, not Wellington."www.dailymail.co.ukDOMINIC SANDBROOK: The battle was a victory for EuropeDOMINIC SANDBROOK: The date was June 18, 1815. At Quatre Bras, a few miles from the Belgian village of Waterloo, 19-year-old Private Matthew Clay was close to despair.
I don't watch a Worsley production for much serious insight, more a basic primer and a little light relief. However, I sometimes find her constant dressing up a bit distracting. I get the impression she is a frustrated actor, so perhaps Cambridge and the footlights should have been more her thing?
All history, and particularly popular history, uses the lens of modern society. Perhaps therefore her and Dominics comments should be seen in the light of the Brexit schism.
I thought you were going to say she had dressed up as N and ponced about at Waterloo. Merde! Fortunately, the second of the three populist clowns has just met his Waterloo - just one to go (as Wellington might have said).
Nothing attempting to link Lucy Worsley with "history" is worth a farthing. She is no historian.
Historian Lucy Worsley says the Battle of Waterloo was a victory for Europe, it’s time this broadside at Wellington’s triumph met its Waterloo
is not the same as:
DOMINIC SANDBROOK: As historian Lucy Worsley says the battle was a victory for Europe, it’s time this broadside at Wellington’s triumph met its Waterloo
Or do I misunderstand it.
I got the impression that Dominic while aiming the left, shoots his right foot, by having so many wrongs.
I would like to propose: Wellington decided the outcome of the war, not the british. Without Wellington they didn't manage to win a single enterprise on main land. TOTAL DISASTER (as Trump would phrase it) from 1793 to 1814.
Lucy Worsley..... Daily Mail.... Nothing to see. Move on
