Well, it wasn't bad, but I have to admit that I have stopped caring about what happens to Jack Crossman. I loved the earlier novels, could hardly put them down, desperate to know what happened next! I was impressed by the quality of the research which showed in the background, without intruding on the plot. "Kiwi Wars" does not seem to have the same passion for truth behind it as those set in the Crimean and i had to push myself to finish the book - not one for re-reading! Quite a disappointment.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit confusing and the best story. 3 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tried to keep interested but found the story line a bit confusing. Not the best but a different location for an historical fiction book.
