Publisher's Summary

The Fields of Death is the epic final novel in Simon Scarrow's best-selling Wellington and Napoleon Quartet. Essential listening for fans of Bernard Cornwell.

1809. Viscount Wellington and Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte have made their mark as military commanders. Lifelong enemies, they both believe their armies are strong enough to destroy any rival. But in war victory can never be certain.

While Wellington's success continues in Spain, Napoleon feels the sting of failure. Yet despite a disastrous Russian campaign and humiliating defeat at Leipzig, he persists in fighting on.

With Napoleon's power waning, the newly titled Duke of Wellington is perfectly placed to crush the tyrant. But his enemy refuses to surrender, and so the two giants must face a final reckoning on the bloody battlefield of Waterloo....

    "History brought to Life "

    I really enjoyed this 4 book series . The reading was very good too. I knew of the Duke of Wellington but this account of his life really brought him to life for me.
    Also I enjoyed the concept of telling their stories in parallel. Really good book and nice listening experience.

    "Wellington Lionized"

    Most enjoyable but ignores Wellington's constant infidelity. He was not above reproach and this tells only half a story although the military narrative is good.

    "Outstanding"

    This is the fourth and final book of Scarrow’s Revolution Quartet. This book follows Napoleon’s battles with Austria and Russia and Wellington’s peninsular campaigns to the Battle of Waterloo. Scarrow is a master at writing historical fiction. He is such an easy writer to read as the prose flows so beautifully. His depictions of scenes and battles are historically accurate and hold my attention. I found these four books fascinating. I have been obsessed with this period in history since I was a child. Needless to say, I have read everything I can about the Napoleonic period. These four books cover so much detail they would be great to read many times.

    The book is well written and researched. Scarrow does an excellent job of placing the reader into the time frame of the story. Most of the story is historically accurate except for one item. Scarrow has taken his creative prerogative and has Napoleon and Wellington meeting a day or so after the Battle of Waterloo. That meeting never took place.

    I used my iPad to google maps and battle maps of the various battles in the book. That made it easier to follow the story. The book is fairly long at twenty-three and a half hours. Jonathan Keeble does an excellent job narrating the book. Keeble narrated all four books. I have listened to him narrate many books over the years. He has a comfortable voice to listen to.

    "Outstanding!"

    This whole series has been well written and engaging! It covers historical events which have always interested me and about which I have read widely. Instead of a catalogue of facts we have been treated to an insight to the private lives of the two key players, Napoleon and Wellington. I am almost saddened to reach the end despite the necessity.

    Jonathan Keeble is a new narrator for me and will now be among the few that "sell the book" as far as my choices are concerned. So engaging I could not help but be caught up in the excitement he conveyed. Bravo that man!!

    Thank you to both Simon Scarrow and Jonathan Keeble, now I must find more gripping audio books to fill the void Napoleon and Wellington will leave.

    "Great conclusion to a well done series!"

    Simon Scarrow shines in this rendering of the end of the Napolonic wars. Well constructed from both sides (Napoleon and Duke of Wellington) this book was long but I️ seriously couldn’t stop listening til the conclusion of the Waterloo campaign.
    Plus Jonathan Keeble’s voice and incredible diction could make the ingredients on a soup can riveting.
