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.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen Tryon | 2/13/2014

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mark Singer | 1/17/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Singerman | 1/2/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pete | 1/1/2014

    " This is my seconding reading of The Face of Battle. The last time I read it was about five or six years ago. I took more away from this reading and probably will take more again from another reading in a few years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hubert Smith | 12/24/2013

    " My introduction to a phenomenal non-fiction writer and historian. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kent | 12/13/2013

    " The best history on what it was like to be a soldier at Agincourt, Waterloo, and the Somme. Keegan never lets you down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charles Spitzig | 12/11/2013

    " Kind of disappointing. I was hoping this book would lead me to some broader understanding of soldiers' lives in battle. I just came away with some thoroughly understood specific things, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jp | 11/7/2013

    " A classic, un-sanitized look at three famous battles fought by the English ( Agincourt, Waterloo, Somme) that sheds light on all aspects of warfare including the inevitable criminality that combat brings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wachlin007 Hotmail | 9/15/2013

    " This book analyzes what it was like to be a common footsoldier through the ages. It discusses what it would have been like to be a swordsman or archer in the middle ages, on up to a rifleman of the modern day. It was very informative. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stutley Constable | 7/28/2013

    " Though newer research has been done in this field John Keegan's efforts contained in this volume can not be dismissed. The research and analysis are excellent and certainly are not "dry history". Well worth the read for historian and history buff alike. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Phil | 7/20/2013

    " Keegan has established the gold standard for military history and historiography. As deeply insightful as it, however, it is not always an easy read, for he goes into fine detail such as a specialist would appreciate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Egbert | 6/21/2013

    " This is the best book of it's kind. Keegan proves why he is the master. It is detailed, researched and well written. I cannot recommend this book more highly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Donovan | 6/13/2013

    " Tactics. Tactics. Tactics. Agincourt, Waterloo and the Somme. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 G Caballero | 3/11/2013

    " I read this to understand more of my primary job as a part of the military. While the face of battle has changed from fronts to urban warfare, it was a very good analysis of how war has changed over time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 10/5/2012

    " Very interesting theoretical work into the actuality of warfare on the ground, Face of Battle examines Agincourt, Waterloo and the Somme to discover the truth of battle in its almost Marxist particulars. The discovery = Murphy's Law and good defense defeat heroes every time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephan Petersen | 9/22/2012

    " Impressive description of how battles where from a combatants point of view. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mackay | 8/23/2012

    " A study of war through the ages, in all its never-ending similarities and horror. "
