Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

The latest historical adventures from Nicole ( Sunset ) neatly summarizes international politics from 1895 to 1914, and if that occasionally slows the narrative it's a nice, easy-listening kind of history lesson. Murdoch Mackinder, scion of a great family in the annals of the (fictional) Royal Western Dragoon Guards, starts as a virginal Subaltern in the Boer War in 1899. After quickly showing his mettle, he becomes a Victoria Cross winner and we follow his steady rise to major in the opening battles of WW I. His career brings him into contact with characters actual (Generals French, Haig, Kitchener, King Edward) and fictional (a Boer maiden, an evil German, Murdoch's American wife Marylee). Disturbed by Kitchener's concentration camps in South Africa, Murdoch is also upright, loyal and brave, a thoroughly nice chap if not very zippy. His appearance as a crisp centarian in the prologue, dated 1983, vitiates some suspense but his story is told with smooth authenticity.

I bought this book on Spec. - simply looking for a war novel to read. The Regiment" was so good I promptly went back and bought "The Command and "The Triumph", and wished I could have read more! These three books document the life and times of Murdoch MacKinder, neatly interweaving a fictional military life with details of British military history. Very cool. I had never heard of author Christopher Nicole before reading this book, but find that he has written over 200 books! Lots more to read! Excellent!

Nicely written. The horrors of war and the strategies used. Characters are very interesting and compels me to continue reading the series associated with Mackinder.

excelent story line. Captivating. We can only hope there will be sequals that go back to the beginings of the regiment not just forward.
