International Napoleonic Weekend – 25th September

Saturday 25th September will find M.M. Bennetts–exhausted but triumphant from the completion of Of Honest Fame (published on 8th October)–at the 17th International Napoleonic Fair at Kingston Maurward House, near Dorchester.  (DT2 8PY, for those whose travel arrangements are managed by satellite.)  The event runs from 10.00 – 5.00.

Yes, there will be signed copies of May 1812.  Yes, you can pre-order a signed copy of Of Honest Fame.  And alongside Bennetts will be Jonathan Hopkins, cavalry supremo and author of Walls of Jericho–a new novel based on the much-neglected story of British cavalrymen who fought against Napoleon.

Rumour has it that there will be a strong smell of black powder hanging over the proceedings, and quite a bit of derring-do on display.  We’ll hope to see you there.
