Following the extraordinary success of The Yellow Admiral, this Aubrey-Maturin novel brings alive the sights and sounds of North Africa as well as the great naval battles in the days immediately following Napoleon?s escape from Elba.

Aubrey and Maturin are in the thick of plots and counterplots to prevent his regaining power. Coloured by conspiracies in the Adriatic, in the Berber and Arab lands of the southern shores of the Mediterranean; by night actions, and fierce pursuits; by slave-trading and lion hunts; The Hundred Days is a masterpiece.

?O?Brian is far and away the best of the Napoleonic storytellers and The Hundred Days is one of the best of the series: a classic naval adventure, crammed with incident, superbly plotted and utterly gripping.This is O?Brian at his brilliant, entertaining best and when he is on this form the rest of us who write of the Napoleonic conflict might as well give up and try a new career? - Bernard Cornwell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another find book by Patrick O'Brian He did a good job of giving a naval twist to the end of the Napoleonic wars. Sadly, a few key characters don't pull through, but I guess that is to be expected in a series of this epic scale.

From Our Editors

It’s 1815, and Napoleon Bonaparte has escaped from Elba. Britain is dependent on Jack Aubrey to capture him, but Aubrey is already halfway across the Atlantic, steering a course for the young republic of Chile. Meanwhile, Sheik Ibn Hazm is bent on creating an Islamic insurrection against the Allies. The Hundred Days is the 19th novel in Patrick O’Brian’s saga of Napoleonic Europe, and like other books in the series, it brings to life the sights and sounds of shipboard life in the early 19th century.
