Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'A fine tale of romance and conflict' (Nottingham Evening Post)

'One of the great duels in history, between two of its most fascinating characters. Simon Scarrow brings Wellington and Napoleon to life with a vengeance' (Paul Strathern, author of Napoleon in Egypt)

'Scarrow plunges into the aftermath of the French Revolution for another rip-roaring adnventure story' (Yorkshire Evening Post)

'This is a promising start to a series that shows great potential' (Good Book Guide)

'[YOUNG BLOODS] is well written, researched and a pleasure to read. Recommended' (Historical Novels Review)

'The characters are real, so too the battles... brought vividly to life with the thriller writer's skill' (Nottingham Evening Post)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Europe in the late eighteenth century was a tumultuous place, with war and rebellions breaking out on many fronts. Young Arthur Wesley (later Wellington) and Napoleon Bonaparte grow up worlds apart yet immersed from youth in a culture where a military career is a natural choice for men of ambition. While Wellington is blooded in Ireland and Flanders, Napoleon is caught up in the dramas of the French Revolution and war with Prussia, Britain and Holland. None of this is enough to distract Wellington from his pursuit of Kitty Pakenham or Napoleon from his future bride, Josephine, for these men throw themselves into all aspects of life as enthusiastically as they rush to battle. A wonderful, multi-layered introduction to an epic series.

Par Jo
Format:Broché
A well-written and interesting book about the childhoods of Napoleon Bonaparte and Arthur Wesley (later the Duke of Wellington). First in a set of four books, tracing their steps from birth to the Battle of Waterloo.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Can't Wait to Read the Next One 6 juillet 2006
Par J. Chippindale - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is a departure from the Legions of Rome for Simon Scarrow, but he has proved that he is not a one trick pony by coming up with another excellent read although he has moved through history by almost 2,000 years.

Set in late 18th century Europe, the book follows the military career of two men who were to become the major driving force of their respective countries. The two men are world's apart, not only in physical distance but also in their backgrounds and upbringing.

on the one hand Napoleon Bonaparte caught up in the sordid dramas of the French Revolution and the wars that France is waging. On the other the young man Arthur, who is to become the Duke of Wellington, blooded in battle in Ireland and Flanders.

Both men have a love of life and a love of women and their nature will not allow anyone or anything to stand in their way.

This is an excellent start to what is sure to be a wonderful series.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Trying too hard.... 3 juillet 2007
Par lordhoot - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Young Bloods is a historical fiction that tells the story of Napoleon and his great adversary, Duke of Wellington, from their childhood days and their rise in their profession up to 1795. It is part of a new series written by Simon Scarrow who writes very well in his Cato/Marco series of Roman Legionaires.

However, unlike his Roman books, Scarrow wrote a pretty unexpectional book here. While the story flowed, the interest does not. The author tried too hard and too much to create similiarity between the two characters that one might think they are brothers in disguise instead of two separate characters born on the opposite side of Europe.

I didn't have too much problem with the way Scarrow portaryed Napoleon but I am bit dubious about how Arthur Wesley was done. The book showed that those two actually met as youth in a French military school. One of the few original concept in the book.

I am not sure what to make of this book. Its not very exciting reading material and it doesn't say anything new in fictional form. I would have to read the second book to better assess this book but as it is, it only three stars due to its rather unexceptional contents.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting, To a Point 21 décembre 2010
Par zorba - Publié sur Amazon.com

It's an irresistible theme for a work of historical fiction: Napoleon and Wellington headed inexorably toward a head-on collision. And for the most part, Scarrow brings it off. For me, the main gift of popular historical fiction is that it brings noted people to life, far more than likely in dry history texts. For the first time, Wellington and Bonaparte -- for me, at least -- have depth and personality. So, with that in mind, I look forward to book two of what looks like an impressive series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very good book 29 novembre 2007
Par Joe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The book is very well written; it flows and keeps your attention. If you enjoy historical fiction, this is a great read. People who are sensitive to how either Napoleon or Wellington are portrayed may be somewhat put off by the storyline, but most reads will find the reading enjoyable. Scarrow goes beyond his usual fictional stories and creates a
well reasoned and interesting piece of historical fiction.
