John Morewood read history at Oxford University. He was editor of the Nelson Society from 1997 to 1999 and of the Waterloo Association from 2001 to 2011. He writes articles and lectures on the Napoleonic Wars and co-authored HMS Vanguard at the Nile: The Men, the Ship, the Battle. The mystery surrounding the circumstances of Sir William Ponsonby’s death during the Battle of Waterloo, and the criticism levelled at him by historians, prompted John to research in depth Sir William’s life and career, following in his footsteps through Belgium, France, Ireland, Portugal and Spain.
