Peter Hofschröer

Peter Hofschröer is a British historian who specialises in the Napoleonic Wars. He is a graduate of King's College London.

His recent book, Wellington’s Smallest Victory – The Duke, The Model Maker and the Secret of Waterloo, is the story of the construction of Captain William Siborne’s famous Waterloo Model and how the Duke of Wellington went about trying to force him to change it to comply with Wellington's questionable version of events at Waterloo. Published in April 2004, it has attracted enormous attention from the press and work is in hand to make it into a cinematic film.

His much-acclaimed 1815 – The Waterloo Campaign, a two-volume study of Waterloo, was published in 1998 and 1999 by Greenhill Books. For this work, he was awarded the 1999 Literary Award of the Napoleonic Society of America.

His most recent works were two guidebooks to parts of the Waterloo Campaign published by Pen & Sword, Waterloo 1815: Quatre Bras & Ligny and Waterloo 1815: Wavre, Plancenoit & the Race to Paris.

He has also written on the Prussian and Hanoverian armies in the Osprey Men-at-Arms series as well as on Leipzig and Lützen & Bautzen in 1813 in the Campaign series.

He has contributed numerous articles to magazines and journals such as the BBC History Magazine, Military History, War in History, the Journal of the Society of Army Historical Research, First Empire, Military Illustrated, Age of Napoleon and the Osprey Military Journal.

He has also contributed to the BBC History Website, has been a historical advisor to various TV companies and was involved in the production of the computer game based on the Waterloo Campaign Fields of Glory, published by MicroProse.

He has contributed to Napoleon’s Marshals, edited by Dr. David Chandler and is a contributor to both the New Dictionary of National Biography, published by Oxford University Press, as well as the Encyclopaedia of the French Revolutionary & Napoleonic Wars, recently published by ABC Clio.

He regularly presents papers at gatherings such as the Consortium on Revolutionary Europe, the Wellington Congress, at the NAM, RUSI, etc. and also gives talks at events such as the Cheltenham Literary Festival and the International Napoleonic Fair.

His awards include a Fellowship of the International Napoleonic Society and the Memorial Medal of the League of Bismarck, once in bronze, once in silver.
