9781463522926: One of the 28th: A Tale of Waterloo

When meek Herbert Penfold makes an unexpectedly bold decision to leave his estate to the son of the woman he loved as a youth, his jealous sisters set about to make certain it does not happen. The lad, Ralph Conway, develops a close friendship with Mr. Penfold, but as he approaches manhood, he joins the British Army and is sent to join the fight against Napoleon Bonaparte, one of history’s greatest generals. While Ralph is gone, Mr. Penfold passes away and his last will and testament is nowhere to be found. Will Ralph survive the Battle of Waterloo and the great fight against Napoleon? Can anyone find Mr. Penfold’s will? These questions and more will be answered in G. A. Henty’s One of the 28th: A Tale of Waterloo. Set in the early-nineteenth century, this book includes more than one hundred geographical, historical, and explanatory footnotes to aid the modern reader.
