Not many books of mine get five stars - if there were six then this book might well deserve it. It is the best book I've read on the Wellington vs, Napoleon war. So well written that it's very easy to read what could have become quite a dry subject. I now have a much more complete understanding of the subject.
More strength to your pen, Mr. Scarrow! May you write many more such fascinating books! ( )

The first three books in this series were great, fast paced and gripping. The fourth and final book was a little hard going and after 100's of pages of preamble, Waterloo (battle of) was disappointing and only briefly covered. Simon Scarrow is a truly great historical fiction writer and this series is a must-read for any Scarrow fans. ( )

But when Wellington invades France in 1814 he gains a swift and certain victory. He indulges in a spell of self-congratulation at Vienna -- until news comes of Napoleon's triumphant return. Napoleon, ambitious as ever, embarks on a Russian campaign which ends in disaster and is then defeated at Leipzig in the biggest battle ever fought in Europe. With Napoleon's power waning at long last, Wellington must seize the opportunity to crush the tyrant once and for all -- and so the two giants face each other for the final time, at Waterloo...
