A King and His Campaigners (Classic Reprint) Excerpt from A King and His Campaigners Verner von Heidenstam, a great Little Master in latter-day Swedish literature, is in his narrative style inclined towards impressionism. The very simplicity of his style, its bald directness of effect, his suggestion of environment and character by means of scanty but illuminating detail, and the veiledness of his root intention, make the effort to render his writings into proper English invidious and hard to achieve with any just measure of success. The stories in this volume, the first of the series entitled "Karolinerna" in the Swedish, deal with the condition of the country and the personality of Charles XII., that military genius of the early part of the eighteenth century. At the age of eighteen he smote Russia, Denmark, and Saxony with her Polish sovereign, who were conspiring to partition his kingdom; and to him Marlborough could say, "I wish I could serve in some campaign under so great a general as your Majesty, that I might learn what I yet want to know." Heidenstam's work, vivid and picturesque, is charged with a deep knowledge of the period treated. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
