review 1: If you love historical fiction, you'll not want to miss Marksman. Although it's number four in its series, you'll still have a wonderful read.France overwhelms Spain, and French overruns the country. Spanish guerrilleros are the only ones left to fight back against overwhelming numbers.A Welshman, Arthur Cadoc, finds himself stranded in the chaos. Although he still still wears the green of the 95th Rifles, he now fights for the charismatic Spanish Colonel, Antonio Rai Herrero....A book for soldiers and lovers of courage.
review 2: Marksman is the fourth outing in The Soldier Chronicles historical series by David Cook.Again, the attention to detail is superb, and Cook really is in control of his material. The scene is brilliantly set and brought vividly to life
... moreso that you feel as though you're fighting alongside Rifleman Cadoc in early nineteenth century Spain.Cadoc is a tough, squat, brute of a man and demonstrates his skill as one of Wellington's famous sharpshooters during a tense skirmish with French Dragoons. The story is simple enough: French are trying to eliminate Cadoc's Spanish friend, a leader of a group of partisans when they discover a traitor in their midst. With guns blazing the action is relentless until the betrayer is finally apprehended.It is stirring stuff, and few writers are better qualified than Cook to do justice to the period. A thoroughly good read and if you like great characterization, action, intrigue and a love of history, then this is one to add to your collection. less
