Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Mild Case Of Indigestion (Napoleon's Spanish Ulcer Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
I bought this book because it was quite cheap. - Wow! If only all books were as good. I was expecting a run of the mill Naval story, - not a bit of it! I ended up buying all 4 of these volumes purely and simply because I couldn't wait to read the next chapter. The Reader follows the further adventures of Joshua Wellbeloved, American ex-pat who has taken the side of King George instead of the revolutionary movement, and Lieutenant in His Majesty's Royal Navy. Wellbeloved has formed his "Hornets", who are equipped with the Ferguson breech - loading rifle and extremely well-trained. In a nutshell, they are 17th century Commandos. Their exploits reach the ears of Wellington, who takes them under his wing as an entity completely separate from the Admiralty and Horse Guards. I will not spoil the story further, I guarantee that once you start to read, you will be completely hooked.
