5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant! 23 July 2000
By A Customer
This book is yet another masterpiece of the great author, Richard Holmes. In this book, he clearly chronicles events of the era, and excellently evokes the feeling of these events - a capability unique to this superb Professor. My advice is certainly to buy it - one cannot appreciate fully the importance of these battles without the meticulously researched and wonderfully constructed work of Mr Holmes. Well done, Richard!
