by Marcus & Julie Lee

Waterloo Waterloo
by Bernard Cornwell

Bestselling author Bernard Cornwell is celebrated for his ability to bring history to life. Here, in his first work of non-fiction, he has written the true story of the epic battle of Waterloo — a momentous turning point in European history — a tale of one campaign, four days and three armies.

The combination of his vivid, gripping style and detailed historical research make this, the number one book for the upcoming 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. There was heroism on both sides, tragedy too and much misery. Bernard Cornwell brings those combatants back to life, using their memories to recreate what it must have been like to fight in one of the most ghastly battles of history.

In the end it was a victory for Wellington, but when he saw the casualty lists he wept openly. 'I pray to God,' he said, 'I have fought my last battle.' He had, and it is a story for the ages ... more

Outback
Outback Stations

by Daniel McIntosh

A station cook and keen photographer, Dan McIntosh wanted to share the pictures he had taken of the outback life he loved so much. Encouraged by his sister, he started a community Facebook page called Station Photos. Dan wasn't expecting much but within days the bush telegraph kicked in and a year on, Station Photos has almost 50,000 followers and a staggering 30 million views from around the world.

What people love so much about Station Photos is that it's real. Real people taking photos on their phones and cameras of what makes them laugh (and cry), the land they love, their kids, their mates and their animals.

Outback Stations was born from a competition on the Station Photos page to show a day in the life of an outback station. The response was positively overwhelming — and the very best of the images are featured in this book. Like the Facebook page, this book is a celebration of country Australia and the way we live and enjoy life on the land ... more
