So I read Georgette Heyer’s An Infamous Army, and while I liked the romance just fine, I LOVED the historical fiction bits. Like, the history bits. And now I am catching up on the Napoleonic Wars.
I’m taking recs!
Things I am already aware of:
Bernard Cornwall’s new history of the wars
War and Peace
Though, funny story about War and Peace.
It turns out that I have spent my entire adult life conflating War and Peace with Doctor Zhivago, having read or seen NEITHER.
What can I say?
War, dying, estranged lovers, endless snow, duels, family drama, endless fur hats.
You can see why I might get them confused, even though the wars in question are like 140 years apart.
But! If you have recs, particularly engaging non-fiction, concerning the Napoleonic Wars, let me know!
