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.

Review:

"- 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
