9781780332567: The Valley of Death

Sergeant Jack Crossman's second adventure finds him still in the heat of battle in the Crimea. Having survived a dangerous covert mission in The Devil's Own the man known to his comrades as 'Fancy Jack' now faces new horrors at the Battle of Balaclava. In the confusion of the conflict Jack witnesses the carnage during the hopeless and tragic charge of the Light Brigade when more than six hundred British cavalry troops charged Russian gun emplacements, mistakenly following orders that, as they were passed down the chain of command, had been misinterpreted. Kilworth's rousing narrative of courage on the field and his vivid descriptions of the horrifying realities of the Crimean campaign are related with verve and meticulous historical detail, in the spirit of the great military adventures.

About the Author:

Garry Douglas Kilworth was raised in South Yemen, the son of an RAF sergeant. He would later serve for 15 years in the RAF himself. Having spent some time in Hong Kong, where he wrote for the South China Morning Post, he now divides his time between homes in Suffolk and in Spain.

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
