LoveReading View on The Generals

They are Napoleon and Arthur Wellesley (who became the Duke of Wellington). It is the second in a quartet following Young Bloods and these two great generals are beginning to make their mark. Strangely, knowing their fate adds to the tension of this tale. There is enough action to make the stories stand by themselves and the description of their personal lives adds further insight into these complex characters. I shall be interested to see how he deals with the next years. Fascinating stuff. Incidentally he also writes the Eagle series set in the Roman period.

The Generals Synopsis

It's 1796 as The Generals opens, and both Arthur Wellesly (later Wellington) and Napoleon Bonaparte are making their mark as men of military genius. Wellesley, as commander of the 33rd Regiment of Foot, is sent to India, where his skill and bravery make a remarkable impression on his superiors. Napoleon's role as commander of the Army of Italy leads to success in battle and rapid political progress. By 1804, Napoleon has established himself as Emperor, and has his sights set on conquering all of Europe. The time has come for Wellesly to stand against Napoleon in the confrontation that lies ahead.
