Publisher's Summary

Napoleon and Wellington are one of history's most fascinating pairings, vividly symbolising the adversarial nature of French and English relations in the 17th century. Simon Scarrow brings this revolutionary time to life in this vivid historical account.

Fire and Sword is the pause-resisting third novel in Simon Scarrow's best-selling Wellington and Napoleon Quartet. A must-listen for fans of Robert Harris.

It's 1804. Napoleon Bonaparte is emperor of France, his ultimate aim to rule Europe. After defeat at the Battle of Trafalgar, he wins a glorious victory against Austria at Austerlitz. He then deposes the Spanish king and places his own brother on the throne. But he is yet to triumph over his most hated enemy: Great Britain.

Arthur Wellesley (the future Duke of Wellington) throws himself into the British campaign in Europe. After glory in Portugal, he commands the army in a series of triumphant battles across Spain. For those living reluctantly under French rule, his victories suggest that Napoleon's progress is not inexorable: freedom can be restored....

    "Very Good - Stays On Course"
    Any additional comments?

    As always, Jonathan Keeble is amazing. I love when he yells orders to the troops! Simon stays on course with his tale, and really makes you feel like you are behind the scenes of history. He's starting to bring out the cruelty and arrogance of Napoleon, and he's making me see Wellesley as a very good General, but a little lacking in normal life when it comes to being a husband, or a father. I think this is the best installment so far, and can't wait for the next!

    "Amazing retelling of Epic Tale"

    I can't remember when I've been so entertained about reading historical events put into a fictionalized style. Simply put, masterful storytelling at its best. Bernard Cornwell Lookout!

    "A surprise to me ...."

    I wouldn't have chosen this book but decided to take a listen when the first book in the series was a Daily Deal.

    I have now listened to 3 of them so far (of which this the 3rd).

    The narrator is brilliant and really brings the story alive.

    Surprise yourselves and have a listen.
