The latest book is set during winter quarters of 1812-13 and the storyline is split into two parts. One section looks at army politics during the period, which is woven into the lives of several central characters but there's a sub plot around crime and punishment which is threatening to get out of control (and I think we all know who to blame for that, I'm looking at you, Z White) The other part of the book takes place in the unrest of northern Spain and culminates with the storming of Castro Urdiales by the French.
A side project, is the translation of this little book about Charles Alten that I think Rob Griffith found online for me. My German is rusty, so it's a slow process, but I'm enjoying it and hope to share the results with the world when it's done.
Maggie, thank you. From you, that's a huge compliment.
The link to the first of Lynn's Peninsular War saga. I've read the first three, and they are excellent historical fiction--unlike Cornwell's overblown Sharpe, they have accuracy as well as the best parts of good fiction qualities. And this is a recommendation from someone who hasn't a good word to say about the Brits during this period.
I am not familiar with those books. Can you give a citation?
