In the years after Waterloo, an obscure lieutenant is commissioned to make a model of the Battle.

But when his account of the events begins to differ from that of the Duke of Wellington, he finds his funding dries up and he becomes enmeshed in a bureaucratic struggle.

This is a witty, fictionalised account of the true story of the model which is still on display at the National Army Museum.
