Left for dead at the sack of Drogheda, Richard Talbot later ingratiated himself with the future James II by plotting to assassinate Oliver Cromwell. Using fresh primary sources The Last Cavalier: Richard Talbot (1631-91) traces how Talbot, though a gallant, gamester and 'cunning dissembling courtier', grew to be more than just another Restoration rake. He took on the cause of reconciling his countrymen's allegiance to London and to Rome and, under a Catholic king, clawing back their lost status and power. Talbot, now Earl of Tyrconnell and viceroy, almost succeeded but after the Boyne (where he led the Jacobite army in battle) he lost his grip. The Last Cavalier is the first full-scale biography of a great though not a good man.

A Confederate soldier plunges through a portal in time . . . into the future and into the arms of a modern woman Confederate cavalry captain Jason Tarkenton is fighting the battle of his life, desperate to save his fellow comrades-in-arms from their hated Yankee enemies. Suddenly, he hears a thunderous crack in the sky. The earth beneath his feet begins to shift as he is engulfed in darkness and mist. Virginian Vickie Knox has spent most of her life listening to her grandfather’s tales about the Civil War. To humor his obsession, she agrees to don authentic garb for their farming town’s reenactment of a battle. But the stranger in rebel uniform who accosts her and takes her captive isn’t part of the festivities. He’s the real deal—a soldier in Robert E. Lee’s army who left unfinished business back in 1862. Neither of them expects to fall in love. If Jason returns to the past, he could change the course of history—and risk losing Vickie forever. Unless she is willing to gamble her future on a love stronger than time itself . . .

The Last Cavalier Being the Adventures of Count Sainte Hermine in the Age of Napoleon

Indeed, the story of France from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century, as Dumas vibrantly retold it in his numerous enormously popular novels, has long been absent one vital, richly historical era: the Age of Napoleon. But no longer.

Selected as a Top Ten Book of the Year by The Washington Post: the newly discovered last novel by the author of The Three Musketeers. Rousing, big, spirited, its action sweeping across oceans and continents, its hero gloriously indomitable, the last novel of Alexandre Dumas—lost for 125 years in the archives of the National Library in Paris—completes the oeuvre that Dumas imagined at the outset of his literary career. Indeed, the story of France from the Renaissance to the nineteenth century, as Dumas vibrantly retold it in his numerous enormously popular novels, has long been absent one vital, richly historical era: the Age of Napoleon. But no longer. Now, dynamically, in a tale of family honor and undying vengeance, of high adventure and heroic derring-do, The Last Cavalier fills that gap.

This important new book offers the first history of the Royalist armies and their role in the Civil War for over a quarter of a century. Divided into two sections, the first part of the book describes and analyzes the organization, recruitment, training, arms, equipment, tactics and performance of the Royalist armies and compares them to their Parliamentarian, or 'Roundhead', counterparts. The most notable and colourful figures among the King's officers are described, and re-assessed, and the reasons for the Royalists' ultimate failure and defeat are also examined. The second part of the book takes a close look at some of the engagements and incidents of the Civil War and examines the reality behind the legend by looking at actual cases in their proper contexts. The reputation of the Royalist soldiers is brought into perspective, with examples of bravery set against incidences of cowardice and desertion, and wisdom against incompetence.
