Reviews

"Dazzling---I love this book. It's beautifully written, the characters are deeply involving, and the historical setting so right---in short, Tides of War is a triumph." --Simon Schama

"A page-turner...A welcome and entertaining contribution to the genre...The great appeal of her book is that history here is like quicksilver, assuming new shapes that are never quite the ones you imagined." --Charles McGrath, The New York Times

"The descriptions of the era, from the battlegrounds of the Peninsular War to the lab that captivates Harriet back in England, are enchanting." --USA Today

"Tillyard is ambitious and precise in her knowledge of historical detail....She sees those tendrils of the war that have reached into our time." --Jane Smiley, The Washington Post

"Hugely enjoyable...Intelligent, classy, entertaining." --The Times (London)
