Free E–pub (An Infamous Army) by Georgette Heyer

Alien Soldiers Baby Zoran Warriors dN know who the Duke of Wellington was But thanks to this wonderful masterpiece by Heyer I now feel a lot educated This was just brilliant The main character Captain Audley was in my opinion extremely appealing and the wonder is that he fell in love so uickly with the outrageous Lady Barbara Bab was an excellent character and in true Alastair fashion incredibly notorious but she was soifferent from the kind respected Captain Audley that I really wondered what on earth he saw in her that attracted him so much except for the fact that she is On Beauty divinely beautiful but since Audley is supposed to have sense than to fall in love with a woman because of her appearance one really wonders Nevertheless they have a beautiful love story uite la Heyer and as the war rages and Barbara starts to show a compassionate side I was actually uite in favour of her match with Captain AudleyAs for the actual historical part of An Infamous Army Heyer s retelling of the battle of Waterloo was soetailed so intense and so overpowering that I felt as though as I was right there on the battlefield with the Duke of Wellington who seemed to be everywhere at once without getting hit Captain Audley who had to BWWM (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban) 2222 (Interracial African American Billionaire Baby Romance Marriage Urban)

Black Sun Signs: An Astrological Guide to Love and Romance for African-Americans) describe actual battlefield action and well to be sure it was a lot better than I had imaginedI enjoyed the militaryescriptions prior to battle very much as well It was great to see how the Duke was getting ready I remember that Lady Worth was surprised at his giving balls and enjoying himself out of office but I Das Schwert der Totengöttin don t blame him in the least It must have been very hard to be in charge of the army and I think he needed to go to balls and all that in order to stay sane I liked his relationship with his fellow aidese camp whom he called his family It created such a nice sense of unity and collaboration One could tell that even though the Duke was above them in terms of social classes and military grades they were all good friends and went beyond their employee employer relationshipThat being said however Wellington s strong bonds with his co workers only made it all

antics that are being performed at this moment exceed every expectation of folly with which I had previously indulged my fancy I m not sure this novel worked particularly well Theivide between the ball room romances and the military maneuvering was just too wide I really enjoyed both parts This was a bit of a mash up part romance with an unpleasantly self absorbed heroine part history lesson meticulously researched and well told The story opens in Brussels on the eve of the Battle of Waterloo as British and allied European forces prepare to confront a Resurgent Napoleon The Duke Napoleon

An Infamous ArmyThis book has two sides In other words you will find two books inside1 It is efinitely a tribute to Duke of Wellington and his army which fought at Waterloo And it is great tribute Heyer had to spend many hours to get so historically accurate Rough Rider: BWWM Interracial MC Biker Alpha Male Romance descriptions Really Ion t even know what I can say If someone likes to read about wars war strategies and so on he will think of this book like of a jewel I love historical fiction Nonetheless although I appreciate value of Heyer s work I confess I have skipped many sites and battle escriptions I haven t had a mood for such knowledge But I know where I can find it when I will be interested Still I have read with pleasure about other historical facts 2 It is classical romance of Heyer Witty with small surprises with interesting charactersThere are two aspects two things I will remember especially from this bookOne is a history of Harriet and Peregrine They are characters from Regency Buck We see them in An Infamous Army as a married couple Their relationship is portrayed interestingly You will be reminded that there is a real life after Happily Ever AfterSecond is Harry s attitude to the war His awakening of elusion is sadIf I gave stars according to my pleasure from reading in this particular time I would give four stars But I can appreciate the whole book with parts which I haven t thoroughly read I read Heyer for romance This book was not what I expected Too much military and hard to understandREVIEWER S OPINIONI think it might be better to READ this book rather than LISTEN to it as an audiobook It was hard to understand all the military planning and battle action I needed to see Mapping wild gardens: The symbolic conquest of South Africa (African literatures in English) diagrams and pictures It was also hard to follow the various officers names by listening as opposed to reading I understand the authorid a lot of research in order to be accurate about the Battle of Waterloo The narrator spoke too fast for me which Gramatica de baza a limbii romane did not helpI may be off on my percentages but it feels like half the book is about a relationship between an army officer and a widow The other half is about military planning and fighting the Battle of Waterloo This is NOT for someone wanting interesting and fullyeveloped romantic relationships I never understood what they saw in each other It was just instant attraction at first sightTwo characters in this story Barbara and George are the grandchildren of characters in Devil s Cub You Suggestive Inuiry into the Hermetic Mystery with a Dissertation on the More Celebrated of the Alchemical Philosophers Being an Attempt Towards the Recovery of the Ancient Experiment of Nature do NOT need to read that book in advance This isefinitely a stand alone bookThere is a mystery about Lucy and her love interest a minor third story I can t remember how that was resolved or even if it was It needed explanation or it could be my own bad memorySTORY BRIEFColonel Audley sees Barbara at a ball and falls in love at first sight Barbara is a notorious widow who is unlikeable mean vain and spoiled She is beautiful and loves to flirt She falls for the Colonel as well but her bad behavior causes problems Lucy is sad and we on t know why until much later in the book The Battle of Waterloo is the second story Colonel Audley is part of the actionDATAUnabridged audiobook length 14 hours Narrator Claire Higgins Swearing language none Sexual content none Setting 1815 Brussels and Waterloo Belgium Book Published 1937 Genre historical military fiction with a side of romance Although I had read three other Georgette Heyer novels before this one those were all etective stories instead of read three other georgette heyer novels before this one other Georgette Heyer novels before this one were all etective stories instead of historical romances that she s well known for I found this one in a bookstore a few weeks ago and thought that it would be a good introduction to Heyer s other body of work although her mysteries aren t the best I ve ever read her characters are always well formed and the writing is witty and clever so I was looking forward to seeing how she applied this skill to another kind of story A uick note although this book is technically part of a series it functions very well as a stand alone novel to the point where I idn t even realize that I was reading a book from a series until I went to write this reviewBrussels 1815 The summer of love While the Congress of Vienna winds The Modern Drunkard's Adventures with Alcohol down English and French society congregates in Brussels for endless parties balls and general ric This was the first book I have ever read that was written by Georgette Heyer I can see why her work is so loved It was very well written and much attention was given toetail which I always enjoy She put much work it into it while still allowing me to use my imagination to a point that was satisfactory for me While I m far from an expert on the Duke of Wellington or Waterloo I still think the military aspects of the story were very well written and appreciate the research Heyer put into it all My favorite characters were probably Colonel Audley himself the Duke of course and Barbara s brother Lord George view spoilerWhen George was brought in something in my mind hoped he would get some attention IN THE BOOK AS IT WENT ON AND I the book as it went on and I actually happy to find he and Lucy were married For some reason I love the idea of opposite sorts of people getting together I ll admit I was almost as worried as Lucy was in hoping he Grassroots Leviathan d be safe through the battle Very relieved when he was hide spoiler Heyer s forte was historical research and it really shines through in this book The last 13 of the novel consists of aetailed play by play Voices and

entirely unlikeable in most of the novel She s the feminine version of her grandfather and instead of shooting people she breaks hearts and causes young men to kill themselves Lovely We re told she s spoiled andidn t have a soft feminine influence to curb her wild nature but that 57 Ways to Screw Up in Grad School doesn t excuse her bad behavior because she s perfectly aware of what she soing She has a slow revelation and improves upon acuaintance We re t This is exactly the bracing kind of story I needed Jolly good fun as the general population of characters in this book would say Georgette Heyer has always been good at adventure stories set amongst the British upper class but in this she has far outdone herself Her research is astounding The second half of the book largely consists of

150 pages long play by play account of the battle of Waterloo and its immediate lead up and aftermath Heyer seems to know every small action every commander each failed and successful strategy on both sides not to mention her unbelievable knowledge of 19th century warfare and British army cant of the time This part of the novel reads like something between a history tome and the narrative novel that its supposed to be I certainly idn t know about 34 of any of the stuff in there I think her main character Charles Audley one of the aides IELTS Academic and General Task 2 How to Write at a Band 9 Level de camp to Wellington was about the only person who was invented In further praise I think Charles and Barbara are one of the realistic couples she s created and each of them threeimensional and changing throughout the course of the story Their love is somewhat unmotivated at first but if you just accept it there s no fault to be found thereafter with it The first half of the novel is wonderful in the fact that it combines the farcical romance stories that she BWWM does so well and weaves in hints of the militaryrama to come over the course of it It really creates a sense of the hysteria and surreality of being in society in Brussels before the battle of Waterloo one second at balls the next wondering when the cannons will fire on you I wouldn t think of this as a romance novel whatever it may say on the back of the book Romance novels Morning by Morning: How We Home-Schooled Our African-American Sons to the Ivy League don tiscuss battles and histories for 150 pages and hint at it for the rest Also The character of Wellington is wonderful well researched and not idealized in the slightest She used many of his ispatches from the battle to make him even realistic The only thing I would comment on as a problem is that the romance and the escription of Waterloo BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1 (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) don t uite go together It s like one story ends and entirelyifferent one begins when the second half starts with some of the same characters Then for the last 30 pages the first one starts up again wrapping up all the storylines from the first part of the novel affected by the outcome of Waterloo Were it not for Audley the two would seem to have no connection at all It Prophetic Activism did need to flow better and perhaps not have uite so serious a shift in tone It was a little extreme I was jolted and I had to step back and take a breath before resuming after being plunged headfirst into 19th century military strategy PS For you fans of Heyer s These Old Shades one of my favorites and Devil s Cub Barbara is Dominic and Mary s granddaughter the couple from Devil s Cub and they make an appearance Bonus Warning there may be spoilers for Regency Buck Devil s Cub in this reviewas GH uses characters from both in this bookMy good GR friend Hana has covered the historical side of reviewing the book Ion t feel I can better her comments This is her review linked to with her permission I will mention that GH was meticulous in her research at the back of the book is what she calls the short bibliography that runs to two a half pagesI wasn t so keen on this book in my younger ays if GR had been around then I would have given it a solid 35 as in found the history a bit indigestible I loved the romance but on subseuent readings I just skimmed through the history Reread Bab S Charles Love Story That S Right Folks Bab s Charles love story That s right folks breezed through the Battle of Waterloo I thought there was even history than there was On this reading I would put romance Regency life at around 75% war story 25%This read I simply accepted that I wasn t going to remember every real life character just went with the flow I m not a big war story reader at any time but GH s escription of soot blackened faces horses being shot under riders ring true Anyone thinking that the name Grouchy must be a typo anyone who reads the Arrow editions of GH s books can certainly be forgiven for that It isn t Real life person Here he is I was always glad to see one of my favourite secondary GH characters Charles Audley given his own romance but on my first reading I wasn t that keen on Barbara Each reading I have come to love Barbara view spoiler After a Flyboy Action Figure Comes with Gasmask deeply unhappy first marriage we are never told explicitly what exactly Jasper Childeid any suggestions or guidance madden her make her plunge into even outrageous behaviour In our times her actions would at worst look like attention seeking behaviour In the early 19th century scandalous Barbara is given some of GH s best lines Like The Teaching Feminist Activism: Strategies from the Field devil you have There it is off at last You may have perceived that I have been tugging at your ring for the last ten minutes It should of course have been cast at your feet some time ago but the confounded thing was always too tight Take it I think the instant love rings true My Kiwiad Canadian Mum met Your Beautiful Mind (Mindful Drinking Book 2) during WW2 really only knew each other for 2 weeks before they married I think GH captures very well that spirit of recklessness that feeling you may only have nowOther than Charlesoes introducing characters from previous books workJudith on this reading yes although when I was younger I found her middle aged ull This time I find her well meaning valiant in caring for the wounded Flawed of course as she is also very judgementalWorth a pass although he is a spectator I on t like seeing my heroes become thatPerry Harriet yes I think marrying them so young in Regency Buck that GH ecided to continue their story what was likely to happen in such a young marriage when one partner was so immatureDominic Mary Mary was fine but because of the way GH Portrays Dominic This portrays Dominic this as a uerulous rather ridiculous old man I rather wish Heyer hadn t brought them back I on t think they were necessary to the story at all I nearly knocked half a star off my ranking for what GH Respect Love did to one of my favourite leading menOverall I m thankful these are the only characters that GH reused in her romancehistoricals Any time I ever wish Thomas Sylvester Jessamy Fredrica or above all Gideon The Foundling had been given their own story I will reread Dominic s role in this bookWorth who GH portrays as omniscient isiscouraging about the chances of his brother Bab being happy together but he also was unsurprised that a crisis brought out the best in her After the war Charles will
