A great read Dec 28 2013

I really liked this first of the Goff trilogy. It is the detailed foundation of the saga, and it is worked out in meticulous detail, on the battle field and in the ballroom. Characterizations are solid. Portrayals of historical figures and their interaction with the story line are realistic and plausible. I enjoyed this.
Join the Cavalry Nov. 5 2013

A great read from someone who has a sense of the period and a feeling for the horse cavalry. A grand canter from the Crimean campaign and the inane waste of Cardigan's inane and useless charge against the Don battery at Balaclava to the ultimate defeat of Cetshwayo at Ulundi with a detour through the American Civil War, Hennessy guides the reader through history and exposes a number of popular heroes of the time as blundering fools, pompous poseurs or men inadequate to the responsibilities thrust on them. A splendid time for those with a love of the period.
Really good military historical fiction Nov. 2 2013

The author starts in the Crimean War and it continues through the Zulu campaigns in what would become South Africa. The book looks at families, the change that technology brings, and how the hero is involved in the Crimean War, the American Civil War, the Franco Prussian War, and the British Colonial Wars. The author has written three series on the British Calvary, Navy, and Air Force. The author also involves the ever present English class system. The books are multigenerational with Grandfather, Son , and Grandson involved. I have re read the series a number of times and chose to buy it when I could no longer find it the local library. The Grandfather ends up marrying a southern belle and the links to actual military people and politicians make good reading.

Very interesting look at this period of English History. Good attention to background detail. Great suspense and well woven together. I will recommend this to any historical fiction reader interested in British military history during the period 1850-1895.
