A REGIMENTAL AFFAIR by Allan Mallinson
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Feb. 26, 2002

HONORABLE COMPANY by Allan Mallinson
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Dec. 5, 2000

"The author's love of 19th-century detail almost buries what should be a vivid adventure tale. Like the wines his characters so frequently quaff, though, this series will improve with age."

Released: June 8, 1999

"Some saddle sores from Mallinson's affection for 19th-century turns of phrase, but, on the whole, a rousing, chastely nostalgic tale of valiant heroism and dashing derring-do."
Pompous oafs, a sly heiress, and a beguiling nun prove just as challenging as battlefield perils to a British cornet who plays a decisive role in Wellington's defeat of Napoleon. Read full book review >
