The Boy Colonel

A Soldier Without A Name
Book 2 in The Men of Grit Series

Edmund, do you understand, this is not what I want? I was born for war, I have lived my life in war, and I will very likely die in war. But, his voice lifted in the clear air, passion swelling his tones, I do not intend it to be this war!

The year is 1836. A mysterious young English soldier known as the Boy Colonel commands a crack regiment in the snowy wastelands of Siberia. No one knows his history. No one knows his name. The Cossacks want him dead but are they the only ones? It seems his worst enemy may wear an English uniform.

The Boy Colonel strives to perform his duty, but when that duty becomes mixed he must decide which sovereign is greater the king of England, or the God of the Bible. Treachery, intimidation, and deceit block his path. His choice of allegiance may mean the difference between life and death. Is he prepared to risk all to protect his loved ones?

The Men of Grit Christian Fiction Series is a clean, exciting adventure series for young adults of all ages. There is no foul language or sensuality, just good, old-fashioned excitement following the tradition of authors such as Douglas Bond, G.A. Henty, R.M. Ballantyne, Jules Verne, James Fenimore Cooper, and more. The Men of Grit Christian Fiction Series is loved by boys and girls around the world.

An introduction to the story by author John J. Horn:

Historical fiction is, by definition, a mixing of history and fiction. It is the authors responsibility to faithfully combine the two, without misrepresenting the true facts of history. This has been my aim. The war described in the chapters of The Boy Colonel did not take place, so far as we know, but had it taken place, it would probably have been very similar in nature. The bravery portrayed has been equaled and surpassed many times in the true annals of war. Strange deeds are recounted, but stranger have occurred. With God, all things are possible. That you may enjoy the following story and profit from it is one of the greatest hopes of the author John Horn, San Antonio, Texas
