Noticed this while browsing amazon

http://www.amazon.com/Incomparable-Napo ... B008WNW7Q2

Looks interesting but i would like from the experts here like Colin knox, Jeff Bardon or other glourious French officers :D

Allied rabble can also offer opinions :D

Any other books about specific units that are recommended?

One of the other members recommended it in a post awhile back and I picked it up for the Kindle but haven't gotten to it yet.

Hi John,

I have this in my kindle for my smart phone. I'm about a third of the way into the book & find it to be very dry and a bit boring. Nevertheless, I plan on finishing it in the near future

Regards.

John,
I've picked up this title once more and with a different mind set & prospective, I am enjoying it the second time around.
Its a little pricey, as its currently only available in hardcover. It's not too expensive though, if you get it for a Kindle or Nook. Worth the buy thus far....
Will updated you as I progress through the title.

Regards.

I guess I'll pass on it because I have been reading a lot of French books about Waterloo, so I guess I am not new to the French perspective :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
