Replete with extravagant soirées, hunting trips, duels, and scandalous sexual liaisons, this eight-month long negotiation served as a meeting ground for a virtual who's who of European.

Rites of Peace - Adam Zamoyski. The reconstruction of Europe at the Congress of Vienna is probably the most seminal episode in modern history. Not only did the congress redraw the map entirely. It determined which nations were to have a political existence over the next hundred years and which were not. It imposed an ideology on the whole Continent, derived from the interests of four great powers.
Rites of Peace: The Fall of Napoleon and the Congress of Vienna. 656pp, Harper Press, £25. Not since Margaret MacMillan's instant classic on the Treaty of Versailles has there been a book on diplomacy of such richness and readability. It was in October 1813 that Napoleon was decisively beaten by Prussian, Russian and Austrian armies while Whitehall pondered sending Wellington to America to lead the British in the war with the United States. At Leipzig more than half a million men fought over three days in the biggest battle in Europe before 1914. Napoleon was trounced.
