Red Runs the Helmand Summary


Red Runs the Helmand by Patrick Mercer

A gripping adventure in which Mercer brilliantly brings to life the story of soldiers in the Second Anglo-Afghan War.

Anthony Morgan, now just appointed as general, has two of his sons, one his legitimate heir, one his bastard, both fighting in the ranks.

Morgan has arrived just as one of the rival princelings has begun to control Herat, and is determined to carve out some power for himself, and so embarks upon marching to Kandahar, determined to remove the British governor and take the city and province as his own kingdom.

Morgan's life is not made easier by problems with the other generals and in particular his own difficulties in dealing with the growing rivalry between his two sons.

Red Runs the Helmand Reviews


Praise for To Do and Die:

'A finely-drawn depiction of battle and the camaraderie of war' Daily Mail

`Mercer's prose is muscular yet silky smooth. His depiction of the experience of battle is unsurpassed'
Saul David, author of Zulu Dawn

`An excellent fiction debut. Any more please?'
Military Illustrated

`Mercer creates colourful, believable characters that stay true to the dialect of the time, but remain recognisable to any modern soldier. Fans of Sharpe, Flashman or Matthew Hervey should enjoy this novel'
Soldier magazine
