Brought to you by Penguin. 

An Infamous Army is read by Kristin Atherton, who appears in Waterloo Road.

The Battle of Waterloo. A heart-racing tale of adventure, love and fate against the backdrop of one of the most decisive battles in history by one of the greatest and best-selling romantic novelists of all time.

In 1815, beneath the aegis of the Army of Occupation, Brussels is the gayest town in Europe. And the widow Lady Barbara Childe, renowned for being as outrageous as she is beautiful, is at the centre of all that is fashionable and light-hearted. When she meets Charles Audley, dashing aide-de-camp to the great Duke of Wellington himself, her joie de vivre knows no bounds - until the eve of the fateful Battle of Waterloo.... 

Georgette Heyer was the creator - greatest practitioner - of the Regency romance, and An Infamous Army shows why she has won the hearts of a whole new audience with her sweeping historical fiction.

Heyer’s most meaningful novel

I am a huge Heyer fan and read all her regency romances to shreds. I have avoided reading this one however, not being a fan of Spanish Bride. I am so glad I have finally done so. Whilst most of her novels are chocolate boxes for sick days, this most thought provoking and meaningful of all her novels truly demonstrates that she has soul. As always rich in accurate historical detail, alongside beautifully drawn characters, this novel demonstrates the horror of war, but does not neglect to provide an uplifting story line and romance.

Wonderful book well narrated.

A detestable heroine, a long suffering hero with a meticulously researched Battle of Waterloo as background. Beautifully written as one would expect of Heyer. The narrator did a good job too.
The battle scenes are graphic, horrendous and heartrending - not for the faint hearted.

Wonderful!

And the detail - from frocks to firearms - is unparalleled. Performed exceptionally (I’ll be looking for other works read by Kirstin Atherton ... the performance can make or break an audiobook)!
