Great Winter Read
on December 19, 2012
I truly enjoyed reading this book. It covers a number characters in the grand times of Victoria's little wars. The book provides a view of the men with a bit of review of how they operated, fought the enemy and sometimes each other. The little extra bits from their journals and letters make the people more accessible. This book does not gloss over their shortcomings, but it is not meant to be a critical review them either. I found the stories overall to be balanced and well researched. I loved to have had a bit more on each soldier, but that would be quibbling.
I would highly suggest this book to be on your reading list for this bloody, glorious period of time.
