Summary

1878: When his family loses their home, to Jack Roberts, who has grown up hearing stories of the Crimean war and the magnificent charge of the Heavy Brigade, the choice between working in a dangerous factory or enlisting in the army and putting on the famed red uniform is an easy one. But when fighting for Queen and Country takes him far from home to defending a small mission station from overwhelming numbers, it is anything but easy and bravery and stoicism take on new meaning.

Best Story of the Zulu War - Gripping Novel

Although, the novel started off slowly with the story of a boy in a working class family in England feasting on the stories of the Crimean War from an old Veteran; it begins to pick up quickly when Jack at 17 and lying about his age joins the army. Through good timing and luck; he associates with a strong group of friends. They get shipped to to South Africa and Jack comes into his own. He is appreciated by the NCO's and Officers who give him unique opportunities to grow as a talented soldier. When it is time to face the Zulu's, our hero really stands out.
This is obviously the start of a new Griff Hosker series and I can hardly wait for the next part of Jack's life as he moves up in the British Army. Great Read!
