“…the first full study of the siege in over 40 years, drawing on accounts written by British soldiers who took an active part in the operations and on later studies.” ~Book News, Inc.
“…does a wonderful job in describing a portion of that history during the Napoleonic Wars…uses a number of contemporary sources to tell the story of the Rock, including not only military and naval but civilian as well; they suffered as much, if not more, than the soldiers and performed their part in its defense…an important addition to the literature of the Napoleonic Era” ~The Past in Review
