The Valley of Death Summary

The Valley of Death: Sergeant Jack Crossman and the Battle of Balaclava by Garry Douglas

In the spirit of Sharpe comes another adventure of Sergeant Jack Crossman and the Crimean War. Rousing stories of battle adventures and the horrors of campaign life are related with meticulous historical detail. Sergeant Jack Crossman of the 88th, the Connaught Rangers, nicknamed 'Fancy Jack' by the troops for his aristocratic birth yet choosing to join the ranks instead of buying a commission, is now established, with his gang of motley troublemakers from the regiment, as one of the British Army's secret weapons in the Crimean War. Seriously wounded on one of his near-suicide missions to the besieged city of Sebastopol, Crossman is there to take part in the famous 'thin red line' and witnesses the tragic charge of the Light Brigade, as well as the valiant, and more successful, charge of the Heavy Brigade, in the Battle of Balaclava, one of the most famous battles of the Crimean War. Garry Douglas relates the terror, thrill and horror of 'black powder battle' in this rousing follow-up to The Devil's Own, Sergeant Jack Crossman's first adventure.
