Currently reading

Barnes & Noble.

I decided to take a break from my usual reading and checked Robert Asprey's The Reign of Napoleon Bonaparte from the local library. I hadn't actually planned to check this out, since it was the second book in Asprey's duology and the library lacked the first, but I started reading the first chapter and the next thing I knew, I was already into the second. To continue the Napoleonic theme, I also picked up Mark Urban's The Man Who Broke Napoleon's Codes.

Barnes & Noble.
The book is about George Scovell, who worked as a codebreaker in the British Army during the Napoleonic War, breaking both codes used by the French, including the formidable Great Paris Code.
