Canada 1817Captain Matthew Hervey is suffering the effects of unrest within his beloved regiment, the 6th Light Dragoons. While, closer to home, he and his commanding officer have embarked on a collision course - the consequences of which will be devastating...
At seventeen, Allan Mallinson gave up the promise of an Exhibition at Oxford to go to theological college. After three years he took a break with a short-service commission in the army where he served with the infantry. On deciding to make the army a career, he transferred to the cavalry. He began writing while still serving - first, a history of the antecedent regiments of that which he commanded, and then the popular Matthew Hervey series, which chronicles the life of a fictitious cavalry officer before and after Waterloo. He left the army in 2004 as a brigadier to write full time, including defence comment for the Daily Telegraph and then The Times. He also reviews for the Spectator. In 2009 his The Making of the British Army was shortlisted for several prizes and chosen by Jeremy Paxman as a `Book of the Year'. His centenary history, 1914: Fight the Good Fight - Britain, the Army and the Coming of the First World War was shortlisted for the Westminster Medal and won the British Army's Book of the Year Award. Its sequel, Too Important for the Generals - a provocative look at leadership during the war - was published in 2016. Allan Mallinson lives on Salisbury Plain.
