This review is from: The Lost Victory (Paperback)
I very rarely read novels, preferring more factual war histories, but this book combines fact with a completely believable story to provide a most entertaining read. I found it difficult to put down as the story provides historical background to the events leading up to the battle of Spion Kop. It is obviously well researched and well written and does not shy away from the rigours of life around the turn of the 20th century. I'm looking forward to seeing the sequel when it comes out.
