A New Period in History for the Author,
This review is from: Young Bloods: Revolution 1769-1795 (The Wellington and Napoleon Quartet) (Paperback)
This is a departure from the Legions of Rome for Simon Scarrow, but he has proved that he is not a one trick pony by coming up with another excellent read although he has moved through history by almost 2,000 years.
Set in late 18th century Europe, the book follows the military career of two men who were to become the major driving force of their respective countries. The two men are world's apart, not only in physical distance but also in their backgrounds and upbringing.
on the one hand Napoleon Bonaparte caught up in the sordid dramas of the French Revolution and the wars that France is waging. On the other the young man Arthur, who is to become the Duke of Wellington, blooded in battle in Ireland and Flanders.
Both men have a love of life and a love of women and their nature will not allow anyone or anything to stand in their way.
This is an excellent start to what is sure to be a wonderful series.
