Reviews

'I have never met Richard Holmes, but I am deeply jealous of him for Redcoat opens with the re-enactment of a Napoleonic battle that I wish I had written myself... The redcoat and his family were never appreciated, but Richard Holmes has written them a marvellous memorial. Redcoat is a wonderful book, full of anecdote and good sense. Anyone who has enjoyed a Sharpe story will love it, anyone who likes history will want to own it and anyone who cherishes good writing will read it with pleasure.' BERNARD CORNWELL, Daily Mail 'Wonderfully written history of the British soldier, enlivened by the voices of the men who marched in campaigns from Washington to Beijing. Holmes shows why the Duke of Wellington considered common soldiers to be such 'fine fellows'. This is military history at its enthralling best.' Mail on Sunday Books of the Year 'A moving history of footsloggers in the age of muskets and floggings.' Boyd Tonkin, Independent Books of the Year
