A fascinating account of the siege of Gibraltar by the Spanish in 1781 and the brave British and Irish soldiers who fought for the isthmus.
Unfortunately bad feeling still abounds between U. K. and Spain.
A thought provoking story skillfully told.
If ever you visit Gibraltar please visit the museum dedicated to Gibraltar and its history.
Well worth a visit.
I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher David Publish in return for an honest unbiased review. ( )

This is an enjoyable read, despite the quirky punctuation and the topic of war. (The horror of war was not belabored.) The character development is light but sufficient for this work. The pace is fast. The Author's Note at the end usefully gives discrepancies between the book and accepted history. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 132650147X, Paperback)

Defending Gibraltar from the might of the Spanish and French forces will stretch Sergeant Tom Sullivan to his limits. But if anyone can withstand the siege from land and sea throughout 1781 it is the Irish veteran of the American War of Independence. Outnumbered and outflanked, his band of brothers from the Light Company of the 39th Regiment of Foot, with Tom at their helm, fight for their lives as well as their country. Sullivan's War, just like this beleaguered 18th century British colony, is no place for the faint hearted. But bravery brings its rewards as Sergeant Sullivan soon catches the eye of British high command as well as Gibraltar's tavern owner, Lara. With love comes hate, and old feuds die hard amidst the chaos of siege warfare. Sullivan's War is a thrilling historical adventure in the months leading up to the infamous Grand Attack.
