Honour Be Damned

Written by Tom Connery
Review by John R. Vallely

George Markham of the Royal Marines has overcome every obstacle placed in his path in two previous novels in Tom Connery’s series on Britain’s war with revolutionary France. The final book in the trilogy finds Lieutenant Markham on land as he joins with an expeditionary force of French émigrés on a secret mission into the heart of enemy territory. Some devotees of the genre may miss the naval action, but the uncertain loyalties of his allies and the threat posed by revolutionary soldiers should satisfy most. Lieutenant Markham will be missed.
