Recensioner i media
"Paul Strathern's enthralling description of this bizarre imperial adventure reads like Conrad's Heart of Darkness...as a piece of storytelling, it is a masterpiece" * Daily Telegraph * "To begin with, the book leaps off the shelf-display into the hands: the dustjacket is a remarkably fine reproduction of a painting of Napoleon...This is an illuminating and most engaging book" * Spectator * "Superb... Strathern tells the appalling tale of the forced marches across endless deserts...with commendable gusto" -- Andrew Roberts * Sunday Telegraph * "An ambitious and wonderfully detailed saga" * Financial Times * "This is popular narrative history at its best" * Independent on Sunday *
