The War of Wars: The Epic Struggle Between Britain and France: 1789-1815 (Paperback)Robert Harvey (author)
Robert Harvey brilliantly recreates the story of the greatest conflict that stretches from the first blaze of revolution in Paris in 1789 to final victory on the muddy fields of Waterloo.
On land and at sea, throughout the four corners of the continent, from the frozen plains surrounding Moscow and terror on the Caribbean seas, to the muddy low lands of Flanders and the becalmed waters of Trafalgar, The War of Wars tells the powerful story of the greatest conflict of the age.

"'This is the 'definitive' one-volume account of a particualry rich slab of history. Harvey is an energetic writer - he shuttles us along without ever losing pace.' Daily Express. 'Harvey's narrative and the development of his thesis are comprehensive, clear, persuasive and entertaining; indeed it is truly impressive. I doubt a better account of the never-ending war will be written in many a year.' Allan Mallinson, The Spectator. 'an exhillirating sequence of dramatic set-pieces in narrative history's best traditions.' Literary Review"
