Product Description

Product Description

Britain's first global war...as told by Britain's first great popular historian

In all of England’s great wars, it is the years of victory which always follow the years of endurance.

In this second volume of Arthur Bryant’s saga of the epic struggle between England and France from 1793-1814, the story continues, starting with the short-lived and unreal peace of Amiens, and hurtling to the glories of the Peninsular Wars – via Wellington, Nelson and Sir John Moore.

Bryant paints a vital and memorable picture of the Britain of a hundred and eighty years ago.

He highlights the similarities of that age with the Britain of 1939-45: a Britain startled by threats of invasion, grimly preparing to face the worst, stolidly refusing to accept a tyrannical New Order in Europe, and then attacking again and again by land and sea.

“The strongest aspect of his latest work is his grasp of the whole European and world situation. Arthur Bryant is a learned scholar who knows how to use his learning and scholarship for the general good.” - Observer

“Arthur Bryant belongs to the grand tradition of readable English historians. Like Macaulay, he has the gift of making the record of past events continuously moving and exciting. His prose style is simple, energetic, and, where necessary, eloquent. His new book is a masterly achievement. The narrative of Years of Victory is full of fascinating detail.” - Daily Mail

“Readers of this outstanding book, the work of the ablest of our younger historians, will discover that Arthur Bryant, writing for the ordinary man, has accomplished his formidable task supremely well. The miniature pen-portraits are aglow with life. Interest is sustained in every chapter. The author seems incapable of committing the sin that so easily besets the historian, that of dullness.” - Times Educational Supplement

Sir Arthur Bryant was one of the leading British historians of the 1930s to the 1960s. He was the favourite historian of both Sir Winston Churchill and Clement Atlee. He wrote over forty books overall, which collectively sold over two million copies. Sir Harold Wilson, who regarded him as the leading British historian of his age, knighted him for his contribution to public life.

By P. Turk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author blends social and economic developments with the military history of the climactic years of war with France. A good read, although a bit dense at times

HASH(0xa29583e4) out of 5 stars Invasion of Spain July 9 2015
By Richard Perkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This 2nd volume from Bryant is the firsts equal or better. A good account of the war in Portugal and the invasion of Spain by Wellington. It does suffer from one of the same problems of the first and that is, it was not proof read very well, but as with the first volume, I do recommend it.

HASH(0xa29543c0) out of 5 stars Taking on Napoleon Aug. 13 2015
By Betsy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Most of this book deals with the Battle of Trafalgar and then the Peninsular Campaign, along with background issues in Britain. Bryant does a good with the battles, particularly that of Ciudad Rodrigo in1812. There are some proofreading errors, but they did not detract from the book.
