Sinopsis:

As part of the Light Division created to act as the advance guard of Wellington's army, the 95th Rifles are the first into battle and the last out. Fighting, thieving and raping their way across Europe, they are clearly no ordinary troops. The 95th are in fact the first British soldiers to take aim at their targets, to take cover when being shot at, to move tactically by fire and manoeuvre. And by the end of a six-year campaign they have not only proved themselves the toughest fighters in the army, they have also - at huge personal cost - created the modern notion of the infantryman.

About the Author:

Mark Urban is the Diplomatic Editor of the BBC's 'Newsnight' and was formerly defence correspondent for the Independent. He has covered many wars and is remembered for live broadcasts under a Scud attack in Saudi Arabia in 1991 or while being fired upon in Kosovo. His books include Big Boys' Rules: The SAS and the Secret Struggle against the IRA, described by John Stalker as 'a book which needed to be written', and UK Eyes Alpha: Inside British Intelligence, which the Sunday Times found 'accurate, revelatory and fascinating'.
