I was offered this ebook free because I am on a group with the author, David Cook. Since I had really enjoyed the other novellas that lead up to the last and fifth one, it was an offer I could not refuse! I read the last novella, "Death and Duty", which is about the Battle of Waterloo. (Sorry, Sharpe fans! No Richard Sharpe here.)

This book is made up of five short stories. Each story is strong and has good characters. I liked the history sections.

David has been interested in history since his school days, and developed a love for the Napoleonic Wars' era from his father, who painted and amassed a model army of the Battle of Waterloo. From there, David became fascinated with the English Civil Wars, the American Civil War, the Wars of the Roses and English medieval history, particularly the legend of Robin Hood.

David lives outside Winchester
