Saul David's All The King's Men is a thrilling history of the British Redcoat from the English Civil War to Waterloo.

Between 1660 and 1815 British supremacy on foreign soil was near total. Central to this success was the humble redcoat soldier who showed heroism in battle and stoicism in peace, despite appalling treatment. This is their story: of brutal discipline and inedible food, of loyalty and low pay, of barracks and battlefield - of victory, defeat, life and death.

'A heady mixture of heroism, incompetence, devilish tactics and plain good luck', Sunday Times

'Filled with swashbuckling derring-do, the reek of blood and gunpowder, combined with shrewd analysis of power, war and psychology', Simon Sebag Montefiore
