Its destiny has been determined throughout by the convulsions and clashes that took place on the battlegrounds of Europe. The most memorable of these was at Waterloo, a few miles from Brussels. Today, the European ministers who have their meetings here, work for a future of Europe of which Brussels has become the capital. This book traces the highlights of that tumultuous history. It invites us to discover the beauties of this city, its appeal, its poetry, its charm, and the indefinable quality which visitors so quicly learn to appreciate." (Book ref. 1667 )  £ 20.00
