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