About the Author

Bernard Cornwell was born in London, raised in Essex and worked for the BBC for eleven years before meeting Judy, his American wife. Denied an American work permit he wrote a novel instead and has been writing ever since. He and Judy divide their time between Cape Cod and Charleston, South Carolina.

Reviews

Praise for Waterloo:

'[...] An account that is both vivid and scholarly. Readers new to the Waterloo campaign could hope for no better introduction, and veterans will find fresh insights.' Independent

'Cornwell is excellent on the minutiae of tactics [...] he offers narrative clarity, and a sure grip on personalities and period.' Max Hastings, The Sunday Times

'An excellent first foray into non-fiction, and proof that good narrative history is no different from fiction - it's all about the story.' Evening Standard

'A gripping "fife and drum" account [...] beautifully produced.' Country Life

Praise for Bernard Cornwell's previous titles:

'The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive.' George R.R. Martin

'Cornwell's narration is quite masterly and supremely well-researched.' Observer
