About the book
Sergeant Jack Crossman is in rousing action again during the Crimean War, following on from his adventures in The Devils Own and The Valley of Death. 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 Armys secret weapons in the Crimean War. After the Battle of Balaclava and the terrible massacre of the Light Brigade, the British Army is busy regathering its forces in the Crimea. Morale is low, supplies are scarce and the elements unfriendly. Sergeant Jack Crossman is set on another near-suicide mission, a fox hunt, to cut off some Russian supply routes to the north, and once again risks life and limb to guarantee the success of the British ArmyĶ Meanwhile, the Russians launch another attack for possession of Shell Hill, and its another black powder battle for Crossman and the troopsĶ
