A bit slow to start with but once it gets going it is great. If your interested in strategy, adventure or the Napoleonic wars it should be up your alley. The battle of Maida in 1806, the Dardanelles and Egypt in 1809,Sicily and the battles on the Isle of Capri, the Tyrols and naval warfare in the Adriatic. If any of this sounds of interest do read this book. ( )
