One of a series, the best advice that I can give is make sure that you read the entire series in order.

Set in the era of Napoleonic Wars in the late 1700 - early 1800s

The series, which is the best way to refer to the books all follow the life and times, promotion and achievements of both Napoleon and Wellington

I do a great deal of reading and sincerely love history. This tale based as fiction refers to real life historical characters and places. It actually turns
out as a reasonable blend.

OVERALL, I consider this worth reading and it is a good time killer. Read the series in order and if done back to back everything blends together nicely. The dialogue might well have some historical accuracy but in the main is almost certainly fictional. What comes across well is that both N and W were driven charismatic and very deadly. WORTH READING

Oh I love this quartet! I have the first two and eagerly await the next two in July and December.
Gripping tale based on historical record, told in a compelling and entertaining way.

It is boring in the beginning but become very interesting later.
After the characters grow up cannot put down the book.

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.
