"- The novel is packed with action... all in all, our hero has more lives than a catl' - 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
