Bernard Cornwell recommends
thumb
Pendragon's Banner (1995)
(Pendragon's Banner, book 2)
Helen Hollick
"Helen Hollick has it all! She tells a great story, gets her history right and writes consistently readable books."
thumb
The Hundred Days (1998)
(Aubrey / Maturin, book 19)
Patrick O'Brian
"O'Brian is far and away the best of the Napoleonic storytellers and The Hundred Days is one of the best of the series: a classic naval adventure, crammed with incident, superbly plotted and utterly gripping...This is O'Brian at his brilliant, entertaining best and when he is on this form the rest of us who write of the Napoleonic conflict might as well give up and try a new career. Fans of the series will need no encouragement to buy this book, but if you are new to Aubrey and Maturin then this is as splendid an introduction as you could wish for."

Glory in the Name (2003)
