The Last Campaign of Marianne Tambour, by David Ebsworth

I love history and historical research, and I have always been particularly interested in the great upheaval that was the French Revolution and fascinated by Napoleon Bonaparte. One of my historical romances, ANGEL HEART, is set in 1815 during Napoleon's exile in Elba and the 'Hundred Days' which was the period between his return to power and his abdication in July. You can read my post about The Perfumes of an Imperial Couple here
and about Napoleon's last days on St Helena here

I am therefore delighted to welcome David Ebsworth and his great novel THE LAST CAMPAIGN OF MARIANNE TAMBOUR on the blog today. There is a giveaway at the bottom of the post, so don't miss the chance to win a copy of the book!

1815 - On the bloody fields of Waterloo, a battle-weary canteen mistress of Bonaparte’s Imperial Guard battalions must fight to free her daughter from all the perils that war will hurl against them – before this last campaign can kill them both.
“Superb! David Ebsworth has really brought these dramatic events to life. His description of the fighting is particularly vivid and compelling.”  (Andrew W. Field, author of Waterloo: The French Perspective and its companion volume, Prelude to Waterloo: Quatre Bras)
A novel of action and intrigue based on the real-life exploits of two women who fought, in their own right, within Napoleon’s army.
Includes a Battlefield Tour Guide for those wanting to follow the route taken by the story’s main characters or to visit the sites of the 1815 Waterloo Campaign.

  1. Thanks for the stop, Marie, and great to know that we have a shared passion for the Hundred Days and all things Napoleonic. I'll try to catch up with "Angel Heart" as soon as my reading stack reduces a bit. Meanwhile, if any readers have comments, I'd be happy to pick them up.

  2. You are very welcome, David. I will enjoy reading your book!
