Join the exhilarating adventures of Sir Robert Thomas Wilson, an innovative British general during the Napoleonic Wars, and Frances Ellery, a London newspaper owner who is the first war correspondent during the battles against Napoleon, while his newspaper takes up prison reform at home. These two stalwart Brits fight evil across Europe and deep into Russia, and become embroiled in the affairs of exiled French courtiers, including the beautiful Gabrielle. Richard Matthews's narration is punctuated by versatile accents, ranging from refined French and English to Cockney and Indian patois, and never misses a beat or nuance. As Frances Ellery and Robert Wilson charge into battle, Matthews picks up his pacing and follows along, keeping the listener enthralled. M.B.K.
