Author's 3rd book,after 'Four Days in June' and 'Man of Honour' - the first book to feature Jack Steel and the prequel to this title.
Meet Lieutenant Jack Steel - gentleman,soldier,hero.
Ramilles 1706.One of the great victories of the British Army,a signal battle honour for the regiments who were there.But to Captain Steel,standing at the head of his Grenadiers,sinking into the swampy ground,at odds with his Allied partners and receiving contradictory orders,it was had to see Lord Marlborough's grand stratagem ...
Even after victory,Steel finds himself mired in further difficulties. The Allies had thought that they were liberating the people of the Low Countries from the French but some turned out to prefer their previous masters who at least were Catholic and others wanted independence from all powers.Some of Steel's fellow officers wanted out of this war altogether.
Far from the battle lines he relishes,Jack Steel is sent undercover to discover and deal with the traitors.He needs to identify the loyal locals who would help a few British advance troops into the besieged city - a dangerous mission made deadly by his identification by an old enemy,and the brilliant malevolence of the renegade French pirate who is in charge of Ostende.
Jack Steel,first met in 'Man of Honour', is a splendid hero and he will march again in further military adventures,perfect for all fans of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe.
Since April 2013,again in March 2015,and in this year too,the UK Post Office has altered it's Pricing in Proportion template, altering its prices,weight allowances,dimensions and lowered its qualifying compensation rates too!
