    Kindle An Infamous Army PDF/EPUB ´ An Infamous eBook õ ¿ ancient history.co infamous book, army pdf, An Infamous mobile, An Infamous Army PDF/EPUBThis was a bit of a mash up part romance with an unpleasantly self absorbed heroine part history lesson meticulously researched and well told The story opens in Brussels on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo as British and allied European forces prepare to confront a resurgent Napoleon The Duke of Wellington is in command of the British troops who are too few and unseasoned Heyer captures the sense of feverish gaiety that grips this city on the brink of war Wellington's staff work madly to assemble troops and euipment by day; then dance til dawn at glittering parties At the Duchess of Richmond's ball held the night of 15 June 1815 the 42nd Royal Highlanders and the 92nd Foot danced reels and strathspeys to the music of their own pipesthe weird sound of the p

    Kindle An Infamous Army PDF/EPUB ´ An Infamous eBook õ ¿ ancient history.co infamous book, army pdf, An Infamous mobile, An Infamous Army PDF/EPUBI'm not sure this novel worked particularly well The divide between the ball room romances and the military maneuvering was just too wide I really enjoyed both parts but they didn't work that well togetherI'm a big fan of fiction set during the Napoleanic wars When the 95th rifles were mentioned I was super excited to see how Heyer would depict Richard Sharpe before remembering that Sharpe is a fictional character from another series and not a real historical personHeyer did a good job of showing Old Nosey at his best Her Wellington is very much like Wellington as I've seen his elsewhere That's not really a surprise So much of his writing survives and so m

    Kindle An Infamous Army PDF/EPUB ´ An Infamous eBook õ ¿ ancient history.co infamous book, army pdf, An Infamous mobile, An Infamous Army PDF/EPUBI read Heyer for romance This book was not what I expected Too much military and hard to understandREVIEWER’S OPINIONI think it might be better to READ this book rather than LISTEN to it as an audiobook It was hard to understand all the military planning and battle action I needed to see diagrams and pictures It was also hard to follow the various officers’ names by listening as opposed to reading I understand the author

    Kindle An Infamous Army PDF/EPUB ´ An Infamous eBook õ ¿ ancient history.co infamous book, army pdf, An Infamous mobile, An Infamous Army PDF/EPUB Heyer's forte was historical research and it really shines through in this book The last 13 of the novel consists of a detailed play by play description of the Battle of Waterloo complete with troop movements and every gory death exactly as it occurred What happens to the characters during the battle is blended in with the real life events and will keep the reader turning pages until the fictional history is resolved Lady Barbara is entirely unlikeable in most of the novel She's the feminine version of her grandfather and instead of shooting people she breaks hearts and causes young men to kill themselves Lovely We're told she's spoiled and didn't have a soft feminine influence to curb her wild nature but that doesn't excuse her bad behavior because she's perfectly aware of what she's doing She has a slow revelation an

    Kindle An Infamous Army PDF/EPUB ´ An Infamous eBook õ ¿ ancient history.co infamous book, army pdf, An Infamous mobile, An Infamous Army PDF/EPUBWhat did I know about the battle of Waterloo prior to reading this novel? Nothing Nothing at all I didn't even know who the Duke of Wellington was But thanks to this wonderful masterpiece by Heyer I now feel a lot educated This was just brilliant The main character Captain Audley was in my opinion extremely appealing and the wonder is that he fell in love so uickly with the outrageous Lady Barbara Bab was an excellent character and in true Alastair fashion incredibly notorious but she was so different from the kind respected Captain Audley that I really wondered what on earth he saw in her that attracted him so much except for the fact that she is divinely beautiful but since Audley is supposed to have sense than to fall in love with a woman because of her appearance one really wonders Nevertheless they have a beautiful love story uite à la Heyer and as the war ra
