** spoiler alert ** This is an amazing account of a battle I never knew much about. Granted it's fiction, but the fact that victory does not come about until the very end of the day... I was amazed.
The other thing that this novel drummed into my head is how a battle can be ordered and chaotic at the same time. And how even shear numbers and loss of life can determine the day.
My thanks to Vince McCaffrey for recommending this series.
