    (writer and presenter) "The Duke of Wellington is famous as a great soldier and the hero of Waterloo. But not all the Iron Duke's conquests were military. Away from the macho world of war and politics, Wellington was very much a lady's man. In Wellington's Women, award winning historian Amanda Foreman explores the story behind the military - the unfaithful husband, the loyal friend, the passionate lover."
