Great Novel

by Bibliophile on Jul 1, 2011

This has been the first novel that I have read for many years and what a delight it was to read. Although this book was first published in 1949 it still offers anyone interested in the Napoleonic Wars an engrossing story of men at war. The author provides the reader with a great story of seven French Voltiguers (elite skirmishers and/or marksmen) fighting during the campaigns of the Empire under Napoleon from the battle of Aspern to the final showdown at Waterloo. We trudge through cannonades and cavalry charges, hot dusty treks into Spain and Portugal and into the Winter of Russia before the final campaigns and battles of 1813, 1814 and 1815. Although the battle scenes are not in-depth accounts the author provides enough for the reader to get a feel for the heat of battle I found myself rushing through the book to find out what happened to my brave Voltiguers and actually felt a touch of sadness at the end of the story for the fate of these brave men.

R.F. Delderfield's Great Story Of Men At War

by Jimnew on Sep 27, 2007

If you enjoy a great war story, don't miss Seven Men Of Gascony. As a former infantry soldier myself, I can say that this is one of the few books on the Napoleonic Wars that rings true, from the daily struggle to get enough to eat, to the long marches, and the weight of the packs. It is the story of one file of Gascon soldiers in Napoleon's army. Through the early glory, the Russian winter, and Waterloo.
