This is exactly the bracing kind of story I needed Jolly good fun as the general population of characters in this book would say Georgette Heyer has always been good at adventure stories set amongst the British upper class but in this she has far outdone herself Her research is astounding The second half of the book largely consists of an enormously through about 150 pages long play by play account of the battle of Waterloo and its immediate lead up and aftermath Heyer seems to know every small action every commander each failed and successful strategy on both sides not to mention her unbelievable knowledge of 19th century warfare and British army cant of the time This part of the novel reads like something between a history tome and the narrative novel that its supposed to be I certainly didn t know about 34 of any of the stuff in there I think her main character Charles Audley one of the aides de camp to Wellington was about the only person who was invented In further praise I think Charles and Barbara are one of the realistic couples she s created and each of them three dimensional and changing throughout the course of the story Their love is somewhat unmotivated at first but if you just accept it there s no fault to be found thereafter with it The first half of the novel is wonderful in the fact that it combines the farcical romance stories that she does so well and weaves in hints of the military drama to come over the course of it It really creates a sense of the hysteria and surreality of being in society in Brussels before the battle of Waterloo one second at balls the next wondering when the cannons will fire on you I wouldn t think of this as a romance novel whatever it may say on the back of the book Romance novels don t discuss battles and histories for 150 pages and hint at it for the rest Also The character of Wellington is wonderful well researched and not idealized in the slightest She used many of his dispatches from the battle to make him even realistic The only thing I would comment on as a problem is that the romance and the description of Waterloo don t uite go together It s like one story ends and entirely different one begins when the second half starts with some of the same characters Then for the last 30 pages the first one starts up again wrapping up all the storylines from the first part of the novel affected by the outcome of Waterloo Were it not for Audley the two would seem to have no connection at all It did need to flow better and perhaps not have uite so serious a shift in tone It was a little extreme I was jolted and I had to step back and take a breath before resuming after being plunged headfirst into 19th century military strategy PS For you fans of Heyer s These Old Shades one of my favorites

Heyer s forte was historical research and it really shines through in this book The last 13 of the novel consists of a detailed play by play description of the Battle of Waterloo complete with troop movements and every gory death exactly as it occurred What happens to the characters during the battle is blended in with the real life events and will keep the reader turning pages until the fictional history is resolved Lady Barbara is entirely unlikeable in most of the novel She s the feminine version of her grandfather and instead of shooting people she breaks hearts and causes young men to kill themselves Lovely We re told she s spoiled and didn t have a soft feminine influence to curb her wild nature but that doesn t excuse her bad behavior because she s perfectly aware of what she s doing She has a slow revelation and improves upon acuaintance We re told Charles is the best brother and he s so good and kind but his characterization is rather passive in this book He falls in love at first set and lets the lady walk all over him That doesn t make for a very good romance but by the end of the book I felt for the characters and wanted them to be together I skimmed most of the battle action It s very very detailed and extremely gory I mainly wanted to know what happened to Charles A minor subplot involving Lucy Devenish is also worked into this history of Waterloo I liked the fictional parts of the book better than the real life depiction of the battle I had a hard time keeping track of the real people that figured into the story but remembered the other characters from Regency Buck and Devil s Club so I felt invested in their story Different people have different reactions to this book so I won t say if I would recommend it or not but if you read

This was a bit of a mash up part romance with an unpleasantly self absorbed heroine part history lesson meticulously researched and well told The story opens in Brussels on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo as British and allied European forces prepare to confront a resurgent Napoleon The Duke of Wellington is in command of the British troops who are too few and unseasoned Heyer captures the sense of feverish gaiety that grips this city on the brink of war Wellington s staff work madly to assemble troops and euipment by day then dance til dawn at glittering parties At the Duchess of Richmond s ball held the night of 15 June 1815 the 42nd Royal Highlanders and the 92nd Foot danced reels and strathspeys to the music of their own pipesthe weird sound of the pipes began and the Highlanders came marching in with their kilts swinging tartans swept over their left shoulders huge white sporrans bobbing and the red cheuered patterns of their stockings twinkling in the uick steps of the reel A message arrives for Wellington who plans the next day s stand at uatre Bras and the men take their leave The Highland Brigade came marching through the Place in the first rays of sunlightIn just a few hours those Highlanders would face the French in a battle that would cost the lives of over 8000 menThat was only the beginning and two days later the British and their allies would fight Napoleon s finest in the rain soaked fields outside a small village called Waterloo Heyer s descriptions of Waterloo are moving the glory the desperate courage the chaos the hideous pain of the injured both men and horses It s all there and very real and it was as Wellington would say later the nearest run thing you ever saw in your lifeI also learned a great deal about the way war was fought in those days For example infantry suares like these were remarkably effective defenses against cavalry chargesAs for the romanceI think the book would have been better off without it Lady Barbara Child was so selfish and reckless that even her bravery helping with the wounded could not reconcile me to her Sadly many of the characters seem rather dull including some old friends from earlier Alastair Audley books Not my favorite Heyer but an interesting read for fans of military historyContent rating PG for mature themes and graphic descriptions of warJune 2015 Georgette Heyer group read
