Captain Rawson Series
Returning to camp from a dangerous solo mission behind enemy lines, Captain Daniel Rawson finds himself stranded on foot with French soldiers in fierce pursuit. With help from a neighbouring farmer he escapes, but before Daniel can thank and repay him, the house and barn have been set ablaze, apparently by English soldiers.
Back in England there is political unrest and turmoil between Queen Anne and Commander-In-Chief, the Duke of Marlborough, which threatens to deprive the army of the only man capable of leading them to victory against the French.
All the while the treacherous and scheming French Commander, the Duc de Vendome, is becoming hell bent on the capture of Daniel, by any means at his disposal.
