A short story about a mysterious man who arrives in a small 19th century Orkney Island fishing village. He has the air of an aristocrat, the clothes of a beggar and a leather pouch filled with the biggest pearls anyone has ever seen.

The women can't take their lustful eyes off him, the men are jealous, but he only has one woman and one purpose on his mind.

    " this was a wonderful book. Keegan, an academic who taught at Sandhurst but had never experienced combat, examined three classic battles--Agincourt, Waterloo, and the Somme--using an extremely clinical methodology that illuminates the nature of each type of confrontation or engagement that was likely to occur on the battlefield. Well worth the reading! "

    " It is an interesting look at what is happening around and in the minds of those who are actually fighting the battles. Keegan delves into the idea that commander's intent and how things are supposed to go and look like they go on the map are a part of military studies, it is also essential to grasp the experience of the common soldier. He moves through three battles, though this is not a history. In each he breaks them down and tries to examine different facets such as infantry vs infantry engagements, the wounded and other low level perspectives including snippets from participants to build a picture of the battlefield experience. It is an interesting look and worth the read to clarify an issue few others seem to have dealt with. "

    " One of the best books I have ever read on military history. Keegan compares the experiences of the soldiers who fought at Agincourt (1415), Waterloo (1815), and the Somme (1916), and along the way challenges widely-held assumptions. "

    " Keegan's brilliant at figuring out from limited sources what it was like to be a soldier at Agincourt or Waterloo or the Somme. There are too many moments to count of some bit of insight that sticks with you and makes you smile and admire his detective work. The long introduction is worth reading. "
