A tale of three novels
I have now printed three of Donald Featherstone's historical novels. Link
MacDonald of the 42nd is about a soldier in the Crimea and the Indian Mutiny. It is probably the best written.
Tales from a Victorian Barrack Room is about the soldier's life in British Colonial India. Grim.
The Badgered Men is another colonial era historical novel. This time it covers the life of cavalry man, in training, then in the Sikh War. Full of period detail, the first half is a bit slow, but the 2nd half of the book about the soldier on campaign is very well done.
