As per the previous instalments of Fancy Jack (and although I am still reading the book) it is constantly on the move and there is a new surprise every other page. Great writer Reminds me of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe novels

Back to the Crimean War 6 Feb. 2008
By Jeffrey S. Barrett - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I read the Winter Soldiers and throughly enjoyed the characters so I thought that I would give this book a try.I liked the character of Fancy Jack Crossman (who is the Bastard son of a nobleman/Major in the British Army) and his band of 19th Century SF types who play merry hell with the Russians during the siege of Sebastopol.This group has a wide range of characters from a Turkish irregular to a female sniper.All in all if you like adventure and action then I would recommend this book to you.The reason for the four star rating is that the book does drag at times.But all in all a good read.
