About This Book

Early on 21 February 1814, an army officer revealed that the French had been defeated and Napoleon killed. When the London Stock Exchange opened at 10.00 am, the City was full of rumours of an allied victory. This work offers a tale of one of the earliest stock market scams; a tale of greed, deceit and the public humiliation of Lord Cochrane.
