Nelson's Victory
250 Years of War and Peace
Hardcover      ISBN: 1612518672
May 2015 is the 250th anniversary of the launch of HMS Victory. While many books have been written about Nelson's flagship at Trafalgar, none tell the full story of the ship since she first took to the waters in 1765. Nelson's Victory also tells the story of Horatio Nelson, who was born a few weeks before his most famous ship was ordered, and whose career paralleled hers in many ways. While offering new insights on the battle of Trafalgar, this book says much more about the ship's life as a flagship, a fighting ship, a prison hospital ship, a training ship, a floating courtroom, a signal school, a tourist attraction, and a national icon.

Russia Against Napoleon: The True Story of the Campaigns of War and Peace
Russia Against Napoleon
The True Story of the Campaigns of War and Peace
Paperback      ISBN: 0143118862
The first history of the epic defeat of Napoleon's empire told from the Russian perspective. Though much has been written about Napoleon's doomed invasion of Russia and the collapse of the French Empire that ensued, virtually all of it has been from the Western perspective. Now, taking advantage of never- before-seen documents from the Russian archives, Dominic Lieven upends much of the conventional wisdom about the events that formed the backdrop of Tolstoy's masterpiece, War and Peace. Lieven's riveting narrative sweeps readers through epic battles, tense diplomatic exchanges on which the fate of nations hung, and the rise of Russia from near-ruin to Europe's liberator. Rich in detail, Russia Against Napoleon is a groundbreaking masterwork.

Voices from the Peninsula
Eyewitness Accounts by Soldiers of Wellington's Army, 1808-1814
Hardcover      ISBN: 1853674591
The Peninsular War was one of the most successful campaigns ever fought by the British Army. Between 1808 when British troops landed in Portugal, and 1814, when Wellington's army advanced into the south of France, British soldiers were involved in countless battles and sieges against Napoleon's vaunted French veterans. Drawing on rare letters, diaries and memoirs, Ian Fletcher presents insight into the daily lives of British soldiers in this momentous period and evokes such key battles and sieges as Vimeiro, Talavera, Badajoz, Salamanca, Vittoria and San Sebastian. Ian Fletcher's skilful compilation of accounts, placed in context by important background detail, make this the story of the Peninsular War in the words of the men who marched, fought and triumphed with Wellington.
