Long before Sylver the weasel was born, the humans all left Welkin. Now life for the weasels under the heavy paw of the vicious stoat rulers is pretty miserable. Sylver sets out to find the humans, following a clue in a place known as Thunder Oak. This is the first of a trilogy.
First of the colourful exploits of ‘Fancy Jack’ Crossman; The Crimean War is notoriously one of the most brutal and bloody conflicts of the nineteenth century. In an uneasy allience with the French, the Turks and the Sardinians, British soldiers faced death both on the battlefield from the fierce Cossacks and off it from cholera. Sergeant Jack Crossman, referred to by his admiring comrades as ‘Fancy Jack’, a tough, shrewd and skilful soldier, is part of the proud 88th regiment, the Connaught Rangers, also known as The Devil’s Own. Within the regiment Crossman is picked out to lead a covert operation, well knowing that his success or failure could determine the outcome of the war. Gary Kilworth is a master of the period, and of writing sharp, page turning military adventure.
Sergeant Jack Crossman’s second adventure is set at the notorious Battle of Balaclava, where he is witness to the tragic and hopeless charge of the Light Brigade. Rousing narrative of courage on the field and the horrifying realities of the Crimean campaign are related with verve and meticulous historical detail, in the spirit of the great military adventures.
Volume three; After Balaclava and the terrible massacre, morale is low, supplies are scarce, the elements unfriendly and it seems there is a traitor loose in the British forces. Sergeant Jack Crossman is sent on another ‘fox hunt’ to cut off Russian supply routes to the north, and once again risks life and limb the guarantee the success of the British war effort.
The grim reality of war after ‘The Charge of the Light Brigade’ and the cameraderie of professional soldiers come to life in award winning author Garry Douglas Kilworth’s new historical series starring army officer, and occasional espionage agent, ‘Fancy Jack’ Crossman. After the Battle of Inkerman on November 5, 1854, the British Army in the Crimea faces the most terrible ally of the Czar s army the Russian winter. With hopelessly inadequate provisions and clothing, Sergeant Jack Crossman and his band of grumblers and stalwarts of the 88th Connaught Rangers are billeted at Kadikoi village near Balaclava harbor, with instructions to blow up the magazine in the Russian Star Fort. Yet Crossman s true task is to spy on a British general accused of corruption and to bring about his downfall by any means necessary. As Patrick O Brian did for the British Navy, Kilworth vividly portrays the friendship and the courage of old soldiers and the brief, thrilling episodes of combat that will eventually determine the outcome of Great Britain s most grueling war.
The year is 1855 and the port of Sebastopol is still being besieged by the allies but defended vigorously by the Russians. This is of no consequence to Jack Crossman and his hardy band of malcontents as they constantly breach the defences and enter the city to carry out some discreet British business. Russian sharpshooters mysteriously disappear as Crossman and his men strive to make a dent in Russian morale. But these foxhunts serve merely as a warmup to the British Attack on the Redan, a fortification guarding Sebastopol. The British attack, when it does come, is ill planned and ill advised and ends in total disaster and Crossman is forced to bear witness to the wholesale massacre of his fellow soldiers. And then ten days after this hardhitting failure French and Sardinian forces overrun the Russians, and Sebastopol is left to the allies. At last the Crimean War is over and Crossman finds himself posted to India where he will continue his life of espionage and sabotage on a new continent.
After the final dreadful battle in the mud and cold of the Crimea, there could hardly be a greater contrast ‘Fancy Jack’ Crossman, minus a hand, and newly promoted to Lieutenant, finds himself taking ship for the heat and excitement of India. He is to assist the East India Company Army in gathering intelligence at a time when there are ominous signs of restlessness amongst the native troops. Crossman lands at Bombay, expecting to make his way north to the Punjab region where he will be seconded to the irregular infantry force known as Coke’s Rifles. Accompanying him is Sgt Farrier Jones, a military cartographer. Jones is a highly intelligent man, educated at a village church school. Yet Crossman, himself risen from the ranks, sees nothing of his former self in Jones and believes the sergeant is reaching too high. The two men do not get on. Then Crossman meets the Maharaja of Rajputan who offers him a third companion on his journey to the Punjab, a tall and sullen Rajput, who has no desire to be the bodyguard of a British officer. The unlikely trio undergo several trials and adventures before being swept up in the Indian Mutiny of 1857 and the march to relieve Delhi. Reaching the
The new Fancy Jack Crossman novel The Indian Mutiny has almost run its course. Lieutenant Jack Crossman finds himself plagued by one Captain Deighnton, and the roots of Deighntons animosity appear to run deep. When Jack is abducted following the Battle of Bareilly, and accused in his absence of desertion, he has to fight to clear his name only to find Deighnton waiting for yet another, perhaps final, duel…

Set in a world of dark sorcery and strange creatures, where ambition, jealousy and war are rife, Knight’s Dawn begins a magical fantasy epic. On a hillside above a dark and forbidding forest, a wounded knight awakens, his memory gone. All he knows is that he has been in a mighty battle but there has not been a battle in this place for more than a century. Tired, hungry, and alone, the knight must rely on the help of others if he is to survive. He is taken to the magnificent city of Zamerkand, but he will soon find that it is governed by corrupt and unscrupulous officials. With his life increasingly in danger, it seems that the only place the knight can find refuge is outside the city. Rather than risk the evils that lurk beyond its walls, he decides to join the ranks of the mercenary army that calls itself the Red Pavilions. But this is only the beginning of an extraordinary quest to avenge an ancient curse and to discover the truth of his past life.

In the sequel to The Winter Soldiers, ‘Fancy Jack’ concludes his Crimean tour of duty amid the brutal clash of the British and Russian empires. The year is 1855, the port of Sebastopol is still under siege by the Allies, and the czar’s troops are putting up a vigorous defense. Sergeant Jack Crossman and his hardy band of brothers make forays to harass the enemy in the hills and valleys around the troubled city. Russian sharpshooters disappear mysteriously as Crossman and his men chip away at the enemy’s morale. But these foxhunts serve as a mere prelude to the British attack on the Redan, the massive fortification guarding Sebastopol itself. The British assault is as ill planned as it is ill advised, and it ends in a disaster as severe as the Charge of the Light Brigade. Crossman must witness the wholesale massacre of his fellow soldiers. And then two months after this devastating failure, French and Sardinian forces foil a massive Russian counterattack to relieve their fortress. The Allies’ final attack on the Redan will determine Sebastopol’s fate, and the outcome of the first truly modern war.
