    Excellent story that ends with a great battle scene Another winner in this series from Vaughan

    Good retelling of Beecher's IslandMy reason for a five star review isn't the battle of Cavanaugh's Island but for the subplot of greed leading men to do evil Also I liked the idea of how officers in the field realize that to meet the Indians in battle you have to use some of their tactics against them As for the climatic battle on the island it was a good retelling of the real battle of Beecher's Island There was some small changes in the battle but they do not distract from the actual events by that much So you get a little history woven into a good work of fiction Many thanks for an enjoyable story by Mr Vaughan Can't wait for the next book in the series

    4 starsAnother Great story Like the characters The island battle is well described The action well choreographed Glad Gates received justice for his greedy actions Grammar errors keep Vaughan books from getting five stars
