Above all, the narrator conveys the relentless carnage. Dugald Bruce Lockhart, a well-known Scottish actor, is very effective at narrating works such as this. Using changes in timing and intonation, he makes the listener feel the soldier's chaos--the deafening cannonade and musketry and screams and shouts and pain. The historical backstory is not the focus here; it's the battle, plain and simple and immensely complex. The author wrote about it before, especially in his fictional SHARPE'S WATERLOO, published in 1990, part of the bestselling Richard Sharpe series. Cornwell himself narrates the foreword and prologue.
