I read a few, they were OK. There are certainly better historical fiction authors – maybe not for the Peninsular War though. Try Shipway or Holland, both excellent writers.

POLL DESCRIPTION

I started reading the books back when the cover was a bodice ripper. Wrong facings on the cover, a strange flag, dragoons, and Sharpe's Lady had the standard flared nostrils. Was that Shaepe's Eagle?

So I followed the series as they came out. George RR Martin could learn a thing or two about speed writing.

Yes, there are two basic plots. To be charitable, maybe three. So what? As John W Campbell would say, "cracking good yarns". I've read each maybe twice and was entertained. I got my money's' worth.
