    One thought on “Marksman”

    1. The fourth story in the on-going series, but again not set in any order - first one was 1798, second 1799/1800, third was 1794 and MARKSMAN is 1810.Different lives, different times & excellently written.I received this as a promo to read and review by the author.Its set during the Peninsula War where Rifleman Arthur Cadoc of the 95th Rifles, abandoned by the army after Corunna, has fallen in with a band of partisans led by a Colonel Herrero.Cadoc is a great character, tough, loyal, no-nonsen [...]

    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 so 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 sto [...]

    3. 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 [...]

    4. A great readRifleman cradoc is a tale of fiction ,but it covered all the brave men of the 95 th, looking forward to the next book

    5. I really enjoyed this novella - something is different than the others - cocky, tough Welsh Rifleman up against sinister Spanish Partisans and battle-hardened French Dragoons. What's not to love!There isn't a great deal of a story other than lots of fighting, but it does weave nicely along so that as the story draws to a climax there is a conclusion and its nicely done. Also Welsh shooting legend Arthur Cadoc is an interesting character who is nicely fleshed out. I have read the similarities to [...]

    6. Wonderful!!Another instalment of the soldier chronicles, and this time in a different battlefield. Excellency woven together with wit, action, a bit of romance, and history. A very descriptive story that grabs you at page one and doesn't let you go. If you like the Napoleonic wars this is a must read. All the stories are packed with great historical tide bits and very well researched. Bravo!

    7. Historical fiction from the perspective of a Welshman fighting in Spain against Napoleons French. Think of the Sharpe series by Cornwall. The fourth of a series. Had I not begun with this I probably would have appreciated it more, but I had a hard time connecting with the characters.

    8. Another Interesting Historical FictionDavid Cook does it again in this outstanding historical fiction of one aspect of the Napoleonic wars always well researched which heightens the reading experience A must read espeally if your a history buff

    9. This is the fourth novella in the series. As with the other three in the series, I enjoyed it very much. It took me right into the action and kept me there until the end of the book.
