Was this an editing mistake? Every other character spoke normally. If misspellings annoy you I would think carefully before purchase
The stories are fun & for a person familiar with the Lee Enfield/Springfield/ Mauser rifles of a century later the shear lethality of the weapons is credible (the reviewer held British 'marksman' badges for the Lee Enfield in the 1970s); A capable rifleman can hit 'man size' targets out to about 600yds (550metres) quite reliably using 'iron sights' so the typical distances of up to 300yds quoted in the books are credible & would have presented a nightmare to the Napoleonic troops of the early 1800s
Try to ignore the slightly eccentric book titles!
Trying (and, I sincerely hope, failing) to jump on the "Sharpe" bandwagon, but he is no Bernard Cornwell.
Beware of the gushing 5 star reviews - I suspect that the author has friends!
I struggled to get through the free sample without becoming frustrated but I am so glad I did not part with cash for the full books.
