About this title
India, 1816 Fresh from the field of Waterloo, Matthew Hervey is dispatched on a mission of the utmost secrecy. Leaving behind his fiancee, Lady Henrietta Lindsey, he must journey across tempestuous seas to India, an alien, exotic and beguiling land that will test his mettle to the very limit. For the princely state of Chintal is threatened both by intrigue from within and military might from without, and Hervey - sabre in hand - finds he is once more destined for the field of battle... 'Captain Hervey of the 6th Light Dragoons and ADC to the Duke of Wellington is back in the saddle ...He is as fascinating on horseback as Jack Aubrey is on the quarterdeck.'The TimesAbout the Author:
At seventeen, Allan Mallinson gave up the promise of an Exhibition at Oxford to go to theological college. After three years he took a break with a short-service commission in the army where he served with the infantry. On deciding to make the army a career, he transferred to the cavalry. He began writing while still serving - first, a history of the antecedent regiments of that which he commanded, and then the popular Matthew Hervey series, which chronicles the life of a fictitious cavalry officer before and after Waterloo. He left the army in 2004 as a brigadier to write full time, including defence comment for the Daily Telegraph and then The Times. He also reviews for the Spectator. In 2009 his The Making of the British Army was shortlisted for several prizes and chosen by Jeremy Paxman as a `Book of the Year'. His centenary history, 1914: Fight the Good Fight - Britain, the Army and the Coming of the First World War was shortlisted for the Westminster Medal and won the British Army's Book of the Year Award. Its sequel, Too Important for the Generals - a provocative look at leadership during the war - was published in 2016. Allan Mallinson lives on Salisbury Plain.
