    MOBI s mebel.pro ¿ The Gun PDF/EPUB Ñ The Gun KindleOne of my favorite Forester novels Have reread multiple timesSee that many reviews refer to 'The Gun' as an 18 pounder referring to the weight of the shot On page 7 Forester writes about the accident that caused the retreating Spanish army to abandon the gun It would take hours to put that three tons of bronze on to its wheels againuoting the opening paragraphA defeated army was falling back through the mountains from Espinosa Such was its condition that an ignorant observer would find it easier to guess that

    MOBI s mebel.pro ¿ The Gun PDF/EPUB Ñ The Gun KindleThis may perhaps be CS Forester's best novel a non Hornblower standalone story Its main character is a hulking 18 pounder bronze cannon apparently of venerable age even before the time of this story Spain during the Napoleonic war This gun well ornamented with heraldry and a Bible uote at its muzzle And our mouths shall show forth Thy praise is adrift in a grim period of Spanish history a war of no mercy between occupying French forces and Spanish guerrilla bands

    MOBI s mebel.pro ¿ The Gun PDF/EPUB Ñ The Gun KindleAfter the richness of the Hornblower series I found this story somewhat dry There just was not enough energy in it The star of the story is a big bronze eighteen pounder cannon that Spanish guerrillas steal from French forces during the Peninsular War The effects that The Gun has on the lives of the freedom fighters is a study but I never became highly enthusiastic

    MOBI s mebel.pro ¿ The Gun PDF/EPUB Ñ The Gun KindleDuring the Napoleonic Wars a group of Spanish peasants come across a great siege piece an 18 pound cannon They take it upon themselves to use this bounty to throw the French out of their country What follows is an epic journey across Spain against the greatest army Europe had seen since the RomansThe gun acts as a talisman Each man in turn that gains control of it gains great power The peasants and the partisans flock to follow whoever has the cannon with the idea of being part of a great victory over the invaders Each man who controls the cannon responds to his newfound power in different ways Some are simple opportunists some true military leaders some become tyrants and one is inspired beyond his station to achieve great things While the tales of great battles and sieges is engaging the true story is about people The leaders both among the Spanish and the French are revealed in their true character As with most of Forester's stories the battle scenes are fantastic b
