'The Devil's Own is a marvellous book, colourful in its descriptions, its detail and rousing stories of battle exploits and highly informative in its historical imput' - Peterborough Evening Telegraph; 'Those who enjoy going into battle with Sharpe will love joining forces with Sergeant Jack Crossman... he's a hell of a character' - Darlington Northen Echo

From the Publisher:

Garry Douglas Kilworth has great skill in creating page-turning military adventure, his characters form their own story within the framework of true accounts of the Crimean War. The historical accuracy is impeccable and has been authenticated by two specialist researchers.
