This remarkable literary achievement from the widely acclaimed inventor of the Regency romance novel, Georgette Heyer, is said to incorporate one of the most historically accurate and engagingly described depictions ever written of the Battle of Waterloo, one of the bloodiest and most integral battles in history.
‘The Infamous Army’ is set in the early summer of 1815. At the Duchess of Richmond’s eminent ball, the news arrives that Napoleon’s armies are marching toward the Belgian border and nearly every young man in attendance must leave at dawn to serve for their country. Amidst the violence of one of history’s most pivotal battles, Georgette Heyer deftly engages her audiences in a consuming love story between the young widow, Lady Babs Childe, and Charles Audley who is the aide-de-camp to the Duke of Wellington.
This CD audiobook offers another exceptional complete and unabridged reading of a timeless literary masterpiece. Compellingly narrated by Claire Higgins, this admirable work of fiction combines Heyer’s distinctive scrupulous research into the periods she writes about and the kind of heart pounding romance that fans of Jane Austen and period drama will delight in.
