Product Description

Review

The novel is packed with action... all in all, our hero has more lives than a cat (Crimean War Research Society)

... details the horrifying truth of the (Crimean) campaign with dash and a very keen eye for historical detail. (Western Morning News)

A rousing tale which will entertain all who enjoy historical fiction. (The War Correspondent)

The story moves along at a cracking pace. The historical detail is well researched and paints a vivid picture of a British army where supplies are scant... disease is rife and morale is low, yet there is the raw guts of men sent to do a job, regardless of the odds. (Historical Novel Society)

Book Description

Sergeant Jack Crossman's second adventure is set at the notorious Battle of Balaclava, where he is witness to the tragic and hopeless charge of the Light Brigade.

Format: Paperback
I enjoyed this book thoroughly - I think it's a good sequel. It's not as gripping as a sharpe, and I still think that the characters need to develop a bit more. I also thought the title inappropriate - the light Brigade doesn't feature for very long at all - and Fancy Jack doesn't even take part! (had it been a sharpe I'm sure B. Cornwall would have found a way to include sharpe in the charge..)
However, despite what I've said it does keep you waiting to read the 3rd and I would reccommend this book to my mates and to my family. I hope that this review has helped you make a decision...

This is the second book I have read by this author and to be frank I found it to be a tad boring apart from the last couple of chapters. Maybe I was expecting something akin to a "sharpe" adventure and in that respect I was disappointed. This is perhaps one of those books that you read when you have nothing else.

A good fast paced story in the same vein as the Sharpe stories. I enjoyed reading this but parts of the book left some nagging doubts about the historical accuracy of some of the facts which the book was based around. Nevertheless I found this and the previous book in the series (The Devils Own) enjoyable.

As usual well written, exciting and what I think would be a reasonable description about it was like. However the similarities to Sharpe
are often too close for comfort, but maybe that is what the author wanted. Otherwise a very good read, which is the importany thing.

Another well written and interesting book which contrasts the lives of the elite regimental leaders with those of the front line troops.
The story of British involvement in the Crimea is rarely written about but these books bring home not only the horrors of hand to hand fighting but also the incompetence of leaders. This particularly revealed in the activities of the Military Hospital at Scutari.

This is excellent reading, reminiscent of Bernard Cornwells "Sharpe". I was happy to find their are several books containing this character and, this being the second, immediately bought the first, "The Devils Own". I have now read the first three and the standard is maintained throughout. If you like sword fights, battle scenes, skulduggery and the odd romantic interlude, this is for you!

This is an excellent series of books by Garry Douglas Kilworth. The descriptions of the conditions that the soldiers had to endure are so graphic that you can almost picture the scenes. A real shame that only the first 3 in the series are available on Kindle.
