Fire and Sword (Wellington and Napoleon 3)

By Simon Scarrow

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

The third novel in Simon Scarrow's epic quartet of novels about Wellington and Napoleon, chronicling the campaigns and politics that would lead them both to the Battle of Waterloo. A Sunday Times bestseller.

The bestselling third book in Simon Scarrow's Wellington and Napoleon quartet focusing on two giants of European history, Wellington and Napoleon.

In the early years of the nineteenth century, Arthur Wellesley (elevated to Viscount Wellington in the course of the novel) and Napoleon Bonaparte are well established as men of military genius. Wellesley has returned from India, where his skill and bravery made a remarkable impression on his superiors. He faces trials and tribulations on the political scene before becoming embroiled militarily in Copenhagen, then Portugal and finally Spain. Napoleon, established as Emperor, is cementing his control on Europe, intending finally to crush his hated foe across the Channel: Great Britain. The time is fast approaching when Wellington and Napoleon will come face to face in confrontation - and only one man can emerge victorious...
