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