Description

At Aboukir and Acre

A Story of Napoleon’s Invasion of Egypt

Many of us do not even know that Napoleon aspired to conquer as far as Egypt, and in 1798 found himself in the land of the Pyramids and the Sphinx! As is typical for the pages of a Henty story, the reader will be transported back to a time in history. Join Edgar Blagrove, son of a British Merchant in Alexandria, who is left behind when his father has to leave suddenly on the unexpected arrival of the French fleet.  He takes refuge with an Arab tribe and joins in opposition to the French in Cairo when they are cut off from home at the Battle of the Nile. Adventures abound from north Africa all the way to Palestine, until Napoleon’s historic defeat.

About the Author

George Alfred Henty, better known as G.A. Henty, began his storytelling career with his own children. After dinner, he would spend an hour or two telling them a story that would continue the next day. Some stories took weeks to finish!  A friend was present one day and, watching the spell-bound reaction of his children, suggested that Henty write down his stories so others could enjoy them. He did and, as the saying goes, the rest is history!   Henty wrote 144 books as well as numerous stories for magazines and became known as “The Prince of Story-Tellers” and “The Boy’s Own Historian.”  One of Mr. Henty’s secretaries reported that he would quickly pace back and forth in his study, dictating stories as fast as the secretary could write them down!

Henty’s stories revolve around fictional boy heroes caught up in the events of fascinating times in history. The heroes of Henty stories are diligent, intelligent, and dedicated to their country and cause in the face of great perils.  They fight in wars, sail the seas, make discoveries, conquer evil empires, prospect for gold, and participate in a host of other exciting adventures. Along the way, they cross paths with some of history’s most famous people.  Henty’s heroes live through tumultuous historic eras, meeting leaders of that time. Every reader of Henty will gain an understanding of nations and cultures, as these are conveyed as a natural element of the reading.  They’re one of the best ways to cultivate a taste for history in any reader!
