"The best ever description of the battle of Waterloo."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a love story, but it is played out against the most accurate historical background of Napoleon's final battle, Waterloo. Georgette Heyer's historical accuracy has been admired by historians of this period, and she brings the battle to hideous life, while showing how it affected not only those fighting, but the civilian population in Belgium. She also brings the Duke of Wellington to life, showing him as a human being as well as a most remarkable soldier and tactician. I have read this book several times over many years and it never fails to enthrall me.

Description

In 1815, beneath the aegis of the Army of Occupaiton, Brussels is the gayest town in Europe. And the widow Lady Barbara Childe, renowned for being as outrageous as she is beautiful, is at the centre of all that is fashionable and light-hearted. When she meets Charles Audley, dashing aide-de-campe to the great Duke of Wellington himsef, her joie de vivre knows no bounds - until the eve of the fateful Battle of Waterloo....

Author Biography

Author of over fifty books, Georgette Heyer is the best-known and best-loved of all historical novelists, who made the Regency period her own. Her first novel, The Black Moth, published in 1921, was written at the age of fifteen to amuse her convalescent brother; her last was My Lord John. Although most famous for her historical novels, she also wrote eleven detective stories. Georgette Heyer died in 1974 at the age of seventy-one.
