'This is wonderful Boys' Own stuff, a thrilling tale of courage and fortitude... The Road to Kandahar is a great read...I can highly recomend this book, and look forward to the next in the series' Historical Novels Review (Historical Novels Review)

Like the first of Wilcox's novels, this is steeped in history and rattles along nicely. There's a sense of the author hitting his stride... But it's the battles scenes where these novels stand or fall, and the writing is at its best here. Certainly a third volume is a must - bring it on (Bournemouth Daily Echo)

'Wilcox's characters are less brash or glamorous, but arguably more realistic and credible than the likes of ever-enjoyable Sharpe. Good escapism and an enjoyable read' Belfast News Letter (Belfast News Letter)

'Wilcox now has the grand formula and the hope is that more Victorian escapades will flow from his pen' Oxford Times (Oxford Times)

Fonthill is a credible (and creditable) officer without the raw brutishness of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe, yet with ample courage and fortitude. In the world of historical novels he ranks as someone you feel Cornwell's fighting man would be glad to have at his side. I salute you, Captain Fonthill! (Coventry Evening Telegraph)

'Lovers of this brand of millitary fiction have a new hero to celebrate... The story rattles along at a tremendous pace and once started, it was difficult to put down. Fonthill has some pedigree. We deserve to hear more of this new hero' Eastern Daily Press (Eastern Daily Press)

'There is plenty of action and heroism and Wilcox has the same skill as Bernard Cornwell in making historical background and complex battles understandable. This second Fonthill novel is even better than the first... A hugely enjoyable rip-roaring read. Hopefully, there will be many more' Huddersfield Daily Examiner (Huddersfield Daily Examiner)

'Well researched and superbly pace story' Bolton Evening News (Bolton Evening News)

'What a treat... Wilcox has contrived a glorious adventure story that beautifully captures a sense of the wild North West frontier' Western Daily Press (Western Daily Press)
