The Generals (Wellington and Napoleon 2)

The Generals (Wellington and Napoleon 2)

THE GENERALS is the compelling second novel in Simon Scarrow’s bestselling Wellington and Napoleon quartet. A must read for fans of Bernard Cornwell.

In the turbulent aftermath of the French Revolution Napoleon Bonaparte stands accused of treachery and corruption. His reputation is saved by his skill in leading his men to victory in Italy and Egypt. But then he must restore order in France and find peace or victory over her enemies: England – and Arthur Wellesley (the future Duke of Wellington).

Wellesley is leading a vast army in India, where British interests are under threat. The campaign will result in the creation of the Raj – the jewel in the British Empire’s crown. Wellesley returns to England a hardened veteran and more determined than ever to end France’s domination of Europe.

Both Wellesley and Napoleon intend to win – whatever the cost. Who will ultimately succeed?

Reviews

'The characters are real, so too the battles... brought vividly to life with the thriller writer's skill'
<i>Nottingham Evening Post</i>
'Scarrow builds up a fascinating picture of a world at war and sets the stage for the looming confrontation between these two military giants - an enthralling sequel'
<i>Good Reading</i>, Australia
'This is how to bring history alive.. Scarrow draws together the parallel threads of these two giants of history while, at the same time, subtly emphasising the differences in their characters... Scarrow's descriptive powers bring battles to life, from the sweeping panoply of the big picture down to the individual mano-a-mano fights with sword and bayonet, lance and musket. He also gives the reader a greater understanding of how armies behaved in an age when the winner takes all and everyone else must lock up their doors. At times it is blood-churning stuff. THE GENERALS is fiction at its best with all the dash and fervour of a ripping yarn'
<i>Nottingham Evening Post</i>
'One of the great duels in history, between two of its most fascinating characters. Simon Scarrow brings Wellington and Napoleon to life with a vengeance'
Paul Strathern, author of NAPOLEON IN EGYPT
'Scarrow plunges into the aftermath of the French Revolution for another rip-roaring adventure story'
