I’ve been distracted from book reading recently by other exciting things (watching snow melt! Taking long naps!) but I did manage Bernard Cornwall’s Waterloo, YA account of the famous battle in 1815. Cornwell has authored many volumes of historical military fiction, several excellent examples of which have appeared hereabouts in the past, but this is straight and carefully researched, certainly not the first and probably not the last to be attempted. I’m leaving it off the regular list but you can find it here. New books for the list are underway.
