by Allan Mallinson

Part of the Matthew Hervey Series

A Regimental Affair Synopsis

Canada 1817 - Captain Matthew Hervey is suffering the effects of unrest within his beloved regiment, the 6th Light Dragoons. Their new commanding officer - wealthy, arrogant and cruel - has taken an immediate dislike to him. Somehow, Hervey must earn promotion while retaining his integrity and the loyalty of his men. Then the regiment is sent to Canada where, in the aftermath of war with the United States, Hervey faces danger on two fronts. Murderous native tribes are on the move. While, closer to home, he and his commanding officer have embarked on a collision course - the consequences of which will be devastating... A riveting tale of heroism, derring-do and enormous resource in the face of overwhelming adversity. - Birmingham Post .
