About the Author:

Garry Kilworth was raised in South Yemen, the son of an RAF sergeant. Later he served 15 years in the RAF himself. Most recently he was with the British Army in Hong Kong, where he wrote for the South China Morning Post. He now spends his time between Suffolk and Spain, writing full time. He has won many awards for both his children's and adult novels.

From AudioFile:

During the Crimean War, when soldiers still fought in straight lines and military leaders came from the aristocratic ranks regardless combat experience, Sgt. Jack Crossman (hiding from his aristocratic and educated background) and his band of misfit soldiers are selected for covert operations that mean the difference between winning and losing. Garrett interweaves the actions and temperaments of these men with accents, emotions and personalities. Douglas's vivid descriptions of war are illuminated by the polished tones of Garrett, leaving the listener yearning to be a part of the adventures. M.B.K. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
