An exhausted Grand Armeé must battle both foe and elements.Poland 1807: As the Grand Armeé continues its march ever eastwards, Napoleon faces his most difficult challenge to date…
Sergeant Alain Lausard and his loyal dragoons have never known a campaign like it. Anything but fresh from their victory over Frederick’s Prussian forces, Napoleon orders his men onwards into Poland, and headfirst into battle with General Bennigsen and his Russian troops. And the Tsar is not the only enemy that must be overcome: country and climate conspire to make conditions impossible.
The Grande Armeé may be renowned for its ability to move with speed and purpose, but as torrential rain turns Polish roads to quagmires, Europe’s finest are facing a battle hardened foe without their greatest strength. Perhaps not even Bonaparte’s tactical brilliance will be enough to save Lausard and his men from a deadly debacle…
The sixth book in The Alain Lausard Adventures is perfect for fans of Richard Holmes, Ben Kane and Iain Gale.
About the Author
Richard Howard is the pseudonym of a bestselling British author who usually works in another genre. However, his love of the Napoleonic Wars, his life long interest in military history and particularly, the material offered by the campaigns of Napoleon drove him to write the series of novels featuring Alain Lausard and the men who fight alongside him.
