An alternative history

What if.......American civil war technology met medieval aliens? This book is a fantastic war story but also does not ignore the logistics and human side of conflict which to my mind makes it all the stronger. Add in the technological developments that were available at the time (mid 1860s) and exploit them fully and you get an amazing story. Read the whole series - they're brilliant!

Lost Regiment was the first, still the best

I stumbled upon these books in the 90s. I have to say they are incredibly well written. not a huge fan of the reader although he did well with the voices and material.

Patrick Lawlor rocks!

He does a wonderful job bringing these characters to life. I’m so glad that he is the narrator for the series.
