    About "Bernard Cornwell Bruno Casotti"

    1. Bernard Cornwell Bruno Casotti

      Cornwell was born in London in 1944 His father was a Canadian airman, and his mother, who was English, a member of the Women s Auxiliary Air Force He was adopted and brought up in Essex by the Wiggins family, who were members of the Peculiar People, a strict Protestant sect who banned frivolity of all kinds and even medicine After he left them, he changed his name to his birth mother s maiden name, Cornwell.Cornwell was sent away to Monkton Combe School, attended the University of London, and after graduating, worked as a teacher He attempted to enlist in the British armed services at least three times but was rejected on the grounds of myopia.He then joined BBC s Nationwide and was promoted to become head of current affairs at BBC Northern Ireland He then joined Thames Television as editor of Thames News He relocated to the United States in 1980 after marrying an American Unable to get a green card, he started writing novels, as this did not require a work permit.As a child, Cornwell loved the novels of C.S Forester, chronicling the adventures of fictional British naval officer Horatio Hornblower during the Napoleonic Wars, and was surprised to find there were no such novels following Lord Wellington s campaign on land Motivated by the need to support himself in the U.S through writing, Cornwell decided to write such a series He named his chief protagonist Richard Sharpe, a rifleman involved in most major battles of the Peninsular War.Cornwell wanted to start the series with the Siege of Badajoz but decided instead to start with a couple of warm up novels These were Sharpe s Eagle and Sharpe s Gold, both published in 1981 Sharpe s Eagle was picked up by a publisher, and Cornwell got a three book deal He went on to tell the story of Badajoz in his third Sharpe novel, Sharpe s Company, published in 1982.Cornwell and wife Judy co wrote a series of novels, published under the pseudonym Susannah Kells These were A Crowning Mercy, published in 1983, Fallen Angels in 1984, and Coat of Arms aka The Aristocrats in 1986 Cornwell s strict Protestant upbringing informed the background of A Crowning Mercy, which took place during the English Civil War In 1987, he also published Redcoat, an American Revolutionary War novel set in Philadelphia during its 1777 occupation by the British.After publishing eight books in his ongoing Sharpe series, Cornwell was approached by a production company interested in adapting them for television The producers asked him to write a prequel to give them a starting point to the series They also requested that the story feature a large role for Spanish characters to secure co funding from Spain The result was Sharpe s Rifles, published in 1987, and a series of Sharpe television films staring Sean Bean.A series of contemporary thrillers with sailing as a background and common themes followed Wildtrack published in 1988, Sea Lord aka Killer s Wake in 1989, Crackdown in 1990, Stormchild in 1991, and Scoundrel, a political thriller, in 1992.In June 2006, Cornwell was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in the Queen s 80th Birthday Honours List.Cornwell s latest work, Azincourt, was released in the UK in October 2008 The protagonist is an archer who participates in the Battle of Agincourt, another devastating defeat suffered by the French in the Hundred Years War However, Cornwell has stated that it will not be about Thomas of Hookton from The Grail Quest or any of his relatives.

    1. With his first nonfiction book, novelist Bernard Cornwell has done an admirable job of telling the story of the Napoleon’s ultimate defeat. While breaking no new ground, the author does an excellent job of telling the story of the campaign, including the battles of Quatre Bras and Ligny that were fought immediately prior to Waterloo. In telling of the battle of Quatre Bras, Mr. Cornwell does a good job of telling why Quatre Bas was important and why Wellington decided to defend it. It was a cr [...]

    2. An engaging and well paced book that has the hallmarks of Mr Cornwell's ability to construct stories against one of Europe's most famed and important battles.In essence this is a book only about the battle: the armies and the three battles over the four days. The background and lead-in is brief but enough for most readers who then are taken into the camps of the three armies and their movements as they build into clash of armies.For the seasoned Waterloo student or Napoleonic expert Mr Cornwell' [...]

    3. Only buy the hardback edition--this is a gloriously handsome book with at least 50 color plates/maps. Don't even think of buying in electronic form.Such "Saxon Tales" storytelling of a Napoleonic battle isn't for everyone--marred upon occasion by over-dramatic storytelling hardly necessary for the most consequential land battle of the first half of the 19th Century (and perhaps the entire Century). But it is a good basic introduction, with more maps than most modern works provide, and far more c [...]

    4. Reading as a buddy read with Hana. We had both read An Infamous Army by Georgette Heyer & were keen to learn more.& I loved this lavishly illustrated book.I've never read any fiction by Cornwall, but I am certainly going to look for it now.Cornwall's writing style is very readable & approachable. I'm not a historian, so I like this.For example regarding Slender Billy (William of the Netherlands) He wrote to his parents:"We had a magnificent affair against Napoleon today it was my cor [...]

    5. In the end, I gave this one 4 Stars but it was touch and go for awhile. I had to recalibrate my expectations of a Cornwell book. This was his first non-fiction book and I was expecting a telling of the battle more like his awesome fictional tales. The book was mostly a recounting of a very disjointed battle by participants. Very hard to get a big picture of the battle. But the accounts of the battle are excellent and the maps and illustrations are timely and outstanding. Highly recommended but y [...]

    6. "Some battles change nothing. Waterloo changed almost everything." Two hundred years ago this year three battles were fought that altered the course of European history. For over 50 years Britain and France had fought each other for world dominance. But this fight was different. This time the European powers united in one of the first effective trans-national coalitions. The aim: to defeat an aging Emperor who had come back from exile to wage a new war.It was a cliff-hanger and right up until ni [...]

    7. This is the second book of basically the same title written by Bernard Cornwell. The first is #20 in the Richard Sharpe series. Cornwell is one of the most respected writers of historical fiction. But here, he is a true historian looking at this pivotal battle in European history. Unlike many of the Napoleonic Era battles, Waterloo was basically a hastily constructed battle between Napoleon Bonaparte (who desperately needed to his return to the French throne. And, the Allies, led by the Duke of [...]

    8. This was a mixed bag for me. Starting with the good, as an idiot's (ie, moi) guide to the Battle of Waterloo, it was very good. Before reading it, all I knew about Waterloo, other than Wellington's winning it and Napoleon's being packed off to St. Helena, was dancing at the Duchess of Richmond's ball the night before and "The battle of Waterloo was won on the playing fields of Eton." This was compact and for the most part, engagingly told. I now have a clear sense of the various battles, stands, [...]

    9. I've read Cornwell before and enjoyed his fiction so I was surprised to see that he had authored a genuine history. I am now further surprised at how good it is. Without a doubt this book is the clearest detailed account of the Battle of Waterloo I have read. The book is very readable and laymen will have no trouble following the tide of this battle and all its facets. The author's copious citing of the reports and diaries of the combatants conveys a realism to the events described that transpor [...]

    10. In a development that will surprise absolutely no one who is familiar with Cornwell's work, his first foray into non-fiction is fantastic.Cornwell seamlessly transitions from the novel to historical monograph, bringing all of his fiction-writing skills to bear to create the absolute best kind of narrative history. He's got story beats and cliff hanger endings. He's got amazing and flawed characters, at once heroic and identifiable. He doesn't give short shrift to scholarship. Waterloo is impecca [...]

    11. While reading Waterloo, you’ll discover that Bernard Cornwell has brought his considerable writing talents as a novelist to bear on this straight history of one of the most famous battles in the history of warfare. He skillfully ties together the story of three battles, (Ligny, Quatre-Bras, and Waterloo) three armies, (Allied, Prussian, and French) and the three commanders (Wellington, Blucher, and Napoleon.) Cornwell supplies plenty of facts and figures but he doesn’t let them overwhelm the [...]

    12. There is nothing dull about this book; I could not put it down. Cornwell used his novelist skills to tell the story of Waterloo through the words and experience of the soldiers’ letters, diaries and memoirs. He brought the battle to life from both the French, British, Dutch, Flemish and German soldiers’ viewpoints.For the 200th anniversary of the battle of Waterloo, Bernard Cornwell published a non-fiction book on the subject. A number of years ago he had written a historical fiction book ab [...]

    13. Review for audiobook ~ 3 stars story ♫ 5 stars narration.I liked it well enough. I did learn a lot about Waterloo with this book. I was pretty amazed to learn that when this battle was fought, Napoleon was already in exile and this was his attempt to regain power. If he had just stayed put, there wouldn't have been so many lives lost. The brutality of the war was a bit depressing. There was quite a bit of gory details that made me sad. I could have done without detailed accounts of the death a [...]

    14. Cornwell’s Waterloo: The History of Four Days, Three Armies, and Three Battles begins with the return of the five-foot-six thorn in the side of Europe’s monarchies that was Napoleon’s return from his first exile on Alba. We rapidly move through his re-acquisition of France’s military might and the scene in which his soon-to-be opponent Arthur Wellesley is informed of Napoleon’s return. I did find it funny that so many British officers and soldiers were so stoked at the news. I can only [...]

    15. To commemorate the 200 year anniversary of arguably the most important battle of the 19th century, Bernard Cornwell's non fiction account of Waterloo is historically significant in that it ended the storied career of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, perhaps the greatest military leader of his time and established Great Britain as the preeminent military power of the 19th century. I was of course, familiar with the overall story of the battle but not the details which the author so richly adds. For ex [...]

    16. Cornwell is an entertaining writer, and even though book is not fiction, it still has that appealing air. There is a mistake about one of Napoleon's commanders, but that was minor considering the scope of the book and the campaign.

    17. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, cover to cover. Some say it can be a bit simplistic in the way it tells the story of the battle, but I think that’s what I liked most about it. War nonfiction can, on occasion, tend toward mundane detail of which only the writer truly knows what the hell he’s writing about. While there was some of that here, it wasn’t near as extensive as usual and was conveyed in such a manner that it was easy to follow. Spoiler: Napoleon loses at the end.

    18. Waterloo: The History of Four Days, Three Armies, and Three Battles by Bernard Cornwell is Cornwell's first venture into non-fiction.The author, best-known for his historical fiction (including the Sharpe series as well as the ongoing Saxon Chronicles, and numerous other excellent pieces of work), manages to combine the clarity of prose of the novelist with the myriad details of the historian, serving up a rousing, reader-friendly account of the famous battle that brought the Duke of Wellington [...]

    19. This is the first non-fiction book by Bernard Cornwell, but he brings all the talent that he has honed over the years in writing his many historical novels to retelling the story of Waterloo. It's worth mentioning up front that those who have read a lot of military history may be put off by the repetitiveness of some points that he want to drive home, e.g. the way that the Duke of Wellington would invariably position his forces on the reverse side of slopes to protect them from artillery fire. H [...]

    20. Trying to tell the history of a battle is like trying to tell the history of a ball. That's a paraphrase of one of the quotes of a participant in Waterloo and it's accurate. But Cornwell does a superb job of getting as close as possible in this book. Honestly I'm surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. It's well written, engaging, interweaves different viewpoints and concurrent narratives and still manages to be informative and comprehensive.There are two great advantages of this book. First [...]

    21. While Bernard Cornwell has written many historical novels, he is perhaps best known as the creator of Richard Sharpe: the Rifleman fighting in Wellingtons armies throughout the Napoleonic Wars (and portrayed on TV by Sean Bean).While he is also known for carrying out research into the events that his novels are based around, it is perhaps somewhat surprising that - until now - he has produced any works of non-fiction.For his first, he has taken the subject of the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, the [...]

    22. If any fiction author is qualified to write a historical account of the Battle of Waterloo it's probably Cornwell. Best known for his 20+ book Sharpe series, set before, during and after the Napoleonic Wars, Cornwell is known for doing a lot of research and maintaining historical accuracy. It's kinda interesting to see that his recognizable prose style translates neatly over to his first non fiction effort.One thing though, and I know this is nitpicking as it's only one line, but it came right a [...]

    23. WATERLOO is a rare departure for historical novelist Bernard Cornwell: his first non-fiction work, a detailed account of the 1815 battle told from the perspectives of all involved. Cornwell has tackled the subject matter before, of course, in SHARPE'S WATERLOO, but Sharpe couldn't be everywhere at once in that battle so this is a much more thorough work. It's also a great read, unsurprisingly, told by an author who really knows his subject and who gets into the nitty gritty of the battle with al [...]

    24. One of the best history books I have ever read. It cannot be easy to make an account of a four-day battle so riveting, but somehow Cornwell manages to pull it off, leaving us immeasurably better informed about the way wars were fought in the early nineteenth century. And of course, about why Wellington became such a national hero, and how Napoleon ultimately exited the European stage.

    25. Interesting book, great to finally read something on the battles of Waterloo. Well researched and set out. Sometimes though I felt the writing was a little blunt and flat and boring in parts. Other than that I enjoyed the book if you have an interest in Waterloo or military history it's an OK book to read.

    26. 22 FEB 2015 - i enjoy a good book about Napoleon. This one comes with a favorable review by Geevee. See his review here -- /review/show

    27. A captivating retelling of one of the most pivotal battles in early modern European history. Cornwell sheds light on the events leading up to the horrendously violent affair. He instills both suspense and anxiety in the reader as the climactic end draws near.

    28. A history that you can't put down! Cornwell captures your imagination and describes the events of "those four day" so well. It was a close affair and Napoleon with the help of Ney snatched defeat from the jaws of victory!
