Charismatic hero Jack Steel returns, in a new and perilous adventure.
1708. War rages across the lowlands of Flanders. British soldiers fight ferociously to protect their last remaining fortress in Oudenarde. Their mission is to stop their enemies France and Spain forming a powerful union that could relegate Britain to the sidelines in Europe.
Newly married and promoted to the rank of captain, life for Jack Steel has never been better. But now he must go back to where he is needed - on the battlefield. Having already fought some daring campaigns under the Duke of Marlborough, Steel has every reason to be confident. But after a long day of fighting, one of France's finest cavalry regiments ambushes his battered and exhausted Grenadier troops. Taken by surprise, Steel will need a miracle to save them all from annihilation.
Brothers in Arms is the third book in the superb Jack Steel series.
