Reviews

An extraordinary story, packed with drama, incident and great characters...Combines a clear and powerful narrative with shrewd judgements, illuminating vignettes and fresh and telling detail -- Patrick Bishop * Country Life *
A heady mixture of heroism, incompetence, devilish tactics and plain good luck. Those wishing to immerse themselves in this golden age of British military success will relish David's fine piece of history * Sunday Times *
He conveys the temper of soldiers' daily lives and their attitude to fighting beautifully...his description of the Battle of Waterloo makes one's heart beat faster * Daily Telegraph *
At a time when the Army is facing cutbacks while being expected to fight distant, unpopular wars on a shoestring, David's book could not be more topical * Sunday Telegraph *
Filled with swashbuckling derring-do, the reek of blood and gunpowder, combined with shrewd analysis of power, war and psychology -- Simon Sebag Montefiore
Highly readable.... Saul David is particularly good at battle scenes, and the incredibly violent 150-year period leaves him spoilt for choice....His insights are thoughtful and his prose style compelling -- Andrew Roberts * Mail on Sunday *
A rollicking account of the rise of the British Army ... the life of the humble redcoat, from the Restoration to Waterloo * Telegraph (Seven) *
