The Jack Tanner series are enjoyable reading, however, they are remarkably similar in many ways to Bernard Cornwell's 'Sharpe' series of books.
Firstly they are set in historical battle scenarios, they have a man who rises through the ranks to officer status, there is always a baddie who hates him and is trying to bump him off, he always carries his rifle even as an officer, there is always a girl who he beds and finally there is always his trusty sidekick. Spookily similar me thinks.
Sharpe in another era. Not a bad thing but not original.
