Duelling & Rivet Counters with Ben Kane

Home » podcasts » Episode 126

During the Napoleonic period, if you got into a serious disagreement and you were of the officer class, then you would challenge your opponent to a duel. Ben Kane joins our editor to discuss duelling, with pistols and swords during the Napoleonic period, as well as ‘rivet counters’; readers of historical fiction who get in touch with writers to highlight inaccuracies.

Ben is the bestselling author of our Fiction Book of the Month, Napoleon’s Spy.
