I finished this last night and, while not being a masive fan of Napoleonics apart from skirmishy level games and naval engagement, I really enjoyed it. I have a couple of Mark Urban's other historical books including The Man Who Broke Napoleon's Codes, so I'll have plenty to read over the summer. It's certainly given me some ideas for what to do with the Victrix British and French boxed sets that I got for Xmas a couple of years ago.


  1. A great book - one of my favourites. I might dig it out and have another read.

  2. I loved this book too and ended up on another distraction with Alban Miniatures 'Rifles'. Thanks for the tip on the others, the code breaker sounds great.
