Summary ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ¹ Edward Marston

Under Siege

In the wake of victory at Oudenarde career soldier Captain Daniel Rawson must take a leading role in the Allies' new strategy to invade further into French territories and lay siege to Lille the 'pe. I ll admit I don t know anything about The War of the Spanish Succession and therefore nothing about the historical backdrop of this book and in that respect I uite enjoyed learning a little although very little detail was given to the battles and real people mentioned but it gave me an excuse to Google them and in that way I have at least sparked an interest in a time about 100 years before any previous knowledge I had of European military eventsRegarding the storey itself this could be described as an easy read Certainly the plot wasn t exactly complicated with Captain Daniel Rawson the sort of adventurer who is engaged in far too easily successful clandestine spying missions and damsel in distress rescues that lack credibility The interaction between the various characters was good fun but I doubt for one second offered any real kind of realism to how people behaved or acted at the timeIn short the book was kind of good fun but without offering any real insight into what life would have been actually like for people at the time and while offering a glimpse into the military history of the period any fan of the historical period would be likely to be disappointed and anyone hoping to learn of the period would like me probably learn in twenty minutes looking at Wikipedia than reading the entire book

    Nothing good here What was a good series has become a bad soap opera where the hero must continually rescue damsels and turn down lots of sex Battles are covered in a couple of paragraphs and the characters are all rather shallow T

    This is the fourth in the Captain Daniel Rawson series and for me probably the most disappointing After three victories over the French army in Belgium during the Spanish War of Succession the allied forces of British and Dutch armies set out
