A fallen aristocrat must prove himself in the furnace of Napoleon’s army...

1795: Confusion and fear reign in the French Republic. With her troops facing starvation and annihilation on three fronts, France is killing her patriots.

Alain Lausard, an aristocrat whose family were massacred in The Terror, rots in prison. But in a desperate move to save the Italian campaign, now commanded by a young Napoleon Bonaparte, the Directory enlists condemned criminals. For Lausard, the promise of death on the battlefield is all he wants.

Trained as a soldier, Lausard commands respect for turning his ragged miscreants into ruthless cavalry. Yet tensions remain. As the unit falls under the command of the despotic Cezar, a hazardous mission behind enemy lines threatens everything…

Bonaparte’s Sons, the first of the Alain Lausard adventures, is perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell’s Sharpe, Paul Fraser Collard and Iain Gale.
