'This is how to bring history alive.. Scarrow draws together the parallel threads of these two giants of history while, at the same time, subtly emphasising the differences in their characters... Scarrow's descriptive powers bring battles to life, from the sweeping panoply of the big picture down to the individual mano-a-mano fights with sword and bayonet, lance and musket. He also gives the reader a greater understanding of how armies behaved in an age when the winner takes all and everyone else must lock up their doors. At times it is blood-churning stuff. THE GENERALS is fiction at its best with all the dash and fervour of a ripping yarn'
'One of the great duels in history, between two of its most fascinating characters. Simon Scarrow brings Wellington and Napoleon to life with a vengeance'
'Scarrow plunges into the aftermath of the French Revolution for another rip-roaring adventure story'
'Scarrow builds up a fascinating picture of a world at war and sets the stage for the looming confrontation between these two military giants - an enthralling sequel'
'The characters are real, so too the battles... brought vividly to life with the thriller writer's skill'
