    "1826: Bonaparte is dead, the Congress of Vienna's work is done and Europe is at peace. However, in Portugal, civil war is in the air following the death of King John VI. Newly returned from India, Matthew Hervey joins a delegation sent to make an assessment and lend support to the Portuguese regent, his place on the expedition having been secured with the help of his new friend, Lady Katherine Greville. But the Iberian Peninsula is redolent with memories for Hervey. For it was here as a young cornet that he first tasted military action. It was when the French had forced the British army into a gruelling and ignominious retreat until, under the leadership of Sir John Moore, they made their defiant stand at Corunna. In the epic battle that followed, Hervey and the Sixth Light Dragoons played their part. As the wave of the French onslaught broke against the solid rock of British resolve, the tide of war was turned once and for all in England's favour. And now, as the Spanish threaten the fortress at Elvas, Hervey makes ready for battle and prepares to confront ghosts from his past ..."--Publisher's description
    Words of command by Allan Mallinson( Book )
    6 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 106 libraries worldwide
    January 1830, and one of the hardest winters in memory ... And the prime minister, the Iron Duke, is resisting growing calls for parliamentary reform, provoking scenes of violent unrest in the countryside. But there are no police outside London and most of the yeomanry regiments, to whom the authorities had always turned when disorder threatened, have been disbanded as an economy measure. Against this inflammable backdrop Lieutenant-Colonel Matthew Hervey, recently returned from an assignment in the Balkans, takes command of his regiment, the 6th Light Dragoons. His fears that things might be a little dull are quickly dispelled by the everyday business of vexatious officers, difficult choices over which NCOs to promote not to mention the incendiarists on the doorstep of the King himself. But it's when the Sixth are sent to Brussels for the fifteenth anniversary celebrations of the battle of Waterloo and find themselves caught up in the Belgian uprising against Dutch rule that the excitement really starts. Will Hervey be able to keep out of the fighting - a war that would lead, nearly a century later, to Britain's involvement in an altogether different war - while safeguarding his country's interests? Not likely!
