Lieutenant Jack Steel is a born soldier. In the days surrounding the Battle of Blenheim, Steel is tasked with rescuing a letter whose controversial contents could destroy the Duke of Marlborough. Despite the odds and the malevolent Major Jennings, Steel completes the task with verve.

It is inevitable that characters and a story such as this are compared to Bernard Cornwell's Richard Sharpe. I'm a big fan of Sharpe and Steel just can't stand up to the comparison. I am not against a good formula for a book but this just felt ripped off from Cornwell's series but without the grit and daring. A good attempt but it failed for me.

An attempt to duplicate Cornwell's "Sharpe" series. I presume the historical refs are somewhat accurate but unfortunately there are no endnotes to explain what happened and where he strayed from actual events
