About This Item

Bantam Press, London, 1999. 1st edition. Hardcover. Very fine in very fine dustwrapper. Signed by the author to the title page. Altogether an extremely handsome copy of the first adventure featuring Matthew Hervey of the Light Dragoons, set during the final days of the Napoleonic Wars.

Synopsis

"Stirring...stimulating...entertaining...a richness of detail." - USA Today "Now at last a highly literate, deeply read cavalry officer of high rank shows one the nature of horse-borne warfare....Colonel Mallinson's a close run thing is very much to be welcomed." -Patrick O'Brian author of the Aubrey-Maturin series "An astonishingly impressive debut in the field of Napoleonic fiction. Convincingly drawn, perfectly paced, and expertly written, this cavalryman's tale is a joy to read." -Anthony Beevor, author of Stalingrad: The Fateful Siege "A rousing...tale of valiant heroism and dashing derring-do." - Kirkus Reviews "Mallinson expertly captures both the glory and the gore of the battlefield in this sweeping saga.... An exciting historical adventure steeped in authentic military detail." - Booklist
