This is the first in a series of books telling the story of the lives of Napoleon Bonaparte and Arthur Wesley who went on to become the Duke of Wellington. Born in the same year, this book covers their childhood; Bonaparte's in provincial Corsica and Wesley's first in rural Ireland and then London; and then their early political and military careers. Being British I was surprised to find myself initially warming more to Napoleon than to Wesley. By the end of the book, though Wesley grows up a little and you can catch glimpses of the hero he will become. I already have part two in the series and I am looking forward to reading it soon.

The fascinating thing about historical fiction is it brings characters alive. Napoleon and Wellington were only names before I read this book. The coincidences between them is amazing. They were born in the same year. Napoleon¿s story is incredible and his involvement in the French revolution is portrayed very well. A remarkable read.
