Napoleon anyone?

I've been on a Bernard Cornwell kick lately reading my way through the Richard Sharpe series. Gotta love a series, especially a LOOOONG series. A bit heavy on the fighting but the hero is a British soldier who seems to have landed in every major battle of his lifetime, surprise surprise.... But nice escapism of the variety, how nice it is not to be dodging bullets, evil jettis and sinister double-agents... It's Mother's Day weekend and I don't have my children so have a large stack of books, some junk food and glorious weather. Must go and indulge in a lounge chair so I can eat my bon bons in comfort.
