Waterloo, 1815. As the war against Bonaparte rages to its bloody end upon the field of Waterloo, a young officer goes about his duty in the ranks of Wellington’s army. He is Cornet Matthew Hervey of the 6th Light Dragoons – a soldier, gentleman and man of honour, who suddenly finds himself allotted a hero’s role …
‘Now at last a highly literate, deeply read cavalry officer of high rank shows one the nature of horse-borne warfare in those times: A Close Run Thing is very much to be welcomed’ Patrick O’Brian.
Allan Mallinson was a serving cavalry officer. He is also the author of Light Dragoons, a history of four regiments of British Cavalry, one of which he commanded, and a regular reviewer for The Times, the Spectator and the Literary Review. His Matthew Hervey novels are Sunday Times bestsellers and are all available in Bantam paperback.
This book has some foxing to the top of the page block and some slight discolouration due to age.
