Reviews

Andress's vivid account of Britain's history during the war years . . . He writes movingly about the reality of war, the experience of the common soldier and especially of the sailor . . . He shows commendable skill in interweaving the two narratives, the military and the political, to offer a convincing overview of the age -- Alan Forrest * BBC History Magazine * David Andress writes well, charts the British experience of the struggle against Napoleon in a manner that is as thorough as it is enthusiastic, approaches his subject from a refreshing perspective and fills a serious gap in the historiography . . . The Savage Storm is a book that . . . should be read by all those interested in Britain's role in the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars -- Charles Esdaile * Literary Review *
