I Just read "Young Bloods" by Simon Scarrow,  normally I hate to compare authors and the only reason I do so now is because of the subject matter.  But  it's very close to Bernard Cornwell's style in my opinion.

I really liked this book it is a keeper, and I am looking forward to the others in this series.

It starts with the births of Wellington and Napoleon, in 1769 up until 1795. 

From the back of the book

'A great read, full of excitement.... I really don't need this kind of compitition" Bernard Cornwell

'An engrossing storyline, full of teeth clenching battles, political machinations, treachery, honour, love, and death'  Elizabeth Chadwick
