Barbara discovers where her heart lies Now she can do nothing but wait as the battle rages praying for the safety of the one man who can set her free from her wild impulses But as the clouds of war gathered he turned from her in a sudden mysterious indifference Stunned bewildered Barbara wondered what secret she must fathom what new seduction must she devise to regain the one man who she ruefully realized had truly claimed her hear What did I know about the battle of Waterloo prior to reading this novel Nothing Nothing at all I didn t even 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 so different 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 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 so detailed 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 deliver endless messages through the masses of dead bodies and abandoned euipment and the whole of the Allied forces struggling to hold the line against the French troops Since the battle doesn t happen until about 34 of the book I was beginning to doubt whether or not Heyer meant to describe actual battlefield action and well to be sure it was a lot better than I had imaginedI enjoyed the military descriptions 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 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 aides de 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 the sad when some of them died As good as An Infamous Army is it remains a war novel and war novels are wellvery sad I wanted to cry every time an important military died Though his staff fell about him he continued to ride up and down his lines rallying failing troops restraining men who maddened by the rain of deadly shot could hardly be kept from launching themselves through the smoke in a desperate charge against their persecutors Wait a little longer my lads you shall have at them presently he promised By God I thought I had heard enough of this man but he far surpasses my expectations Uxbridge exclaimed It is not a man but a god Wellington was expected by the Brussels population as some kind of demi god He didn t turn out to be what they had expected when he first puts an appearance at a gathering in Brussels in the beginning Well had all these people seen him fight on the battlefield they would have thought like UxbridgeHonestly people back in the days greatly surprised me sometimes Everyone comes to Brussels before the war when they can be of no particular use but simply want a little bit of action but not too much and amusement and they all FLEE during the war when they actually have the chance to help the wounded soldiers who come back in the city looking for help and shelter Like Lord Worth said My opinion of the human race has never been high but the antics that are being performed at this moment exceed every expectation of folly with which I had previously indulged my fancy Out of Bounds (Boundaries, until Charles marches off to fight Napoleon that Barbara discovers where her heart lies Now she can do nothing but

Free read ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ð Georgette Heyer Free read An Infamous Army ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Georgette Heyer ð 6 Free read In the summer of 1815 beneath the aegis of the Army of Occupation Brussels is the gayest town in Europe And the red haired widow Lady Barbara Childe renowned for being as outrageous as she is beautiful is at the centre of the social whirl and of all that is fashionable and light hearted However the city was a nest of intrigue Napoleon threatened Europe but the talk was only of this dazzling and tempestuous young Every brilliant ball supper and concert in the feverish spring seemed to bring 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 I don 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 days 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 I 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 description 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 deeply unhappy first marriage we are never told explicitly what exactly Jasper Childe did 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 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 Kiwi dad Canadian Mum met 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 Charles does introducing characters from previous books workJudith on this reading yes although when I was younger I found her middle aged dull 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 don t like seeing my heroes become thatPerry Harriet yes I think marrying them so young in Regency Buck that GH decided 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 time as a uerulous rather ridiculous old man I rather wish Heyer hadn t brought them back I don t think they were necessary to the story at all I nearly knocked half a star off my ranking for what GH 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 is discouraging 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 need her Will they be happy I certainly wouldn t describe my parent s union as a fairy tale but they remained together hide spoiler Fishes of the Open Ocean uses characters from both in this bookMy good GR friend Hana has covered the historical side of reviewing the book I don t feel I
