Item description for El Husar (Spanish Edition) by Arturo Perez-Reverte...
El Hsar is my first novel. Written in 1983 between two war articles, at that time I had no intentions to dedicate myself to writing literature, and published almost by chance by a publishing company with which I never maintained a good relationship, it has taken me almost twenty years to recover the publication rights. Now this novel surfaces again, finally to the authors liking, with a suitable revision, corrected of errors and lightened of some unnecessary adverbs and adjectives. DArturo Prez-Reverte.

Reviews - What do customers think about El Husar (Spanish Edition)?
Fantastic Early Effort Sep 16, 2006
The story of "El Husar" is certainly not Perez-Reverte's best, but the promise of "El Maestro de Esgrima" and "Captain Alatriste" is clearly there. It's a great stab @ a difficult susbject-- the Napoleonic occupation of Spain written by a native Spaniard. From the perspective of a German (from Alscace) in Napoleon's army.
He's a great author; though the book is only available in it's original Spanish, it's certainly worth it. I read it w/ a Spanish/English dictionary beside me throughout!
