Review:

"'Now at last a highly literate, deeply read cavalry officer of high rank shows one the nature of horse-borne warfare in those times: and Colonel Mallinson's A Close Run Thing is very much to be welcomed.'" (Patrick O'Brian)

"'As astonishingly impressive debut...Convincingly drawn, perfectly paced and expertly written...A joy to read'" (Antony Beevor)

"'The scope of A Close Run Thing is quite breathtaking...A sustained piece of bravura writing'" (Observer)

"'The account of the Battle of Waterloo is an imaginative feat of high order, owing as much as to thorough scholarship as it does to compassion and sensibility. Brilliantly conveyed.'" (Daily Telegraph)

"'Allan Mallinson's grasp of the technical side of his subject is effortless and impressive...The portrayal of the men of all ranks is excellent." (Spectator)

Book Description:

An heroic tale from the Battle of Waterloo and the final days of the Napoleonic Wars that introduces an unforgettable new fictional hero in Matthew Hervey of the 6th Light Dragoons...
