  • A Close Run Thing, by Allan Mallinson. This novel of the British Cavalry at Waterloo approaches its subject more in the manner of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey and Maturin books than that of Bernard Cornwell's Richard Sharpe books, and is a welcome entry into the field for that alone. I don't think Mallison pulls this off as well as O'Brian did, but the books are still worth reading.
