A well written story based around actual historical events, which is fast moving and engaging. This book delivers all this in Spadefulls and is hugely enjoyable. We follow our hero from enrolment to the battle with the usual Sharpesque rising hrough the ranks. The descriptions of the locations and battles are superb and make the book difficult to put down. Well worth a read.
