Publisher's Summary

Malta, 1854.

Jack and his disreputable 113th Foot have to resort to ungentlemanly actions to get themselves posted to Crimea. A lieutenant in British Army's worst regiment, Jack hankers for recognition to regain his true station in life.

At the Battle of the Alma, Jack is sent to General Campbell of the Highland Brigade to offer the assistance of the 113th. Having buried the dead, he meets the beautiful Helen Maxwell, but soon after receives orders to leave the country.

Facing the formidable Russian army led by the savage Major Kutozov, Jack learns that life in the front line is tough, with only the wayward Helen to alleviate the horrors of war.

You silly muffin (lol)

Poor Jack. All he wants is to get a little recognition for him and his men and the people around him make that so difficult for him. This book was fantastic, although I think I enjoyed the first book a tiny bit better. The narration was excellent again. And I am really looking forward to starting book number 3.

This book was given to me at my request (Thank you!). I am providing a voluntary and honest review.

Off to Russia

A few years have past since Rangoon and Jack Windrush is still with the 113th foot hoping to make a name for himself.

I like these story’s about Jack discovering that being a soldier is very different from what he has read in books and that real war is a lot more nasty than he thought it would be.

As well as a lot of action between soldiers of Russia and Britain you soon see a little hint of another direction that jacks future may head.

Well worth this time these books
