Description
Summary:Rising from awkward middle son, living in his elder brother's shadow, and unpromising junior officer, Arthur Wesley became the 1st Duke of Wellington, and a towering figure in British history. But how much do we really know about the Iron Duke, and how do his private, personal thoughts fit with his public persona? As this documentary reveals, the true nature of the Duke's character was far different. The film focuses on the intriguing complexities of Wellington, his character, personality, and, told through his own words and the words of those who knew him. Using a rich and extensive written archive, it goes beyond the well-worn clichés to reveal the real man behind his reputation as a phlegmatic hero.
