Item description for Rutland's Curse by Roger Carpenter...

Afghanistan 1879. Britain fights to keep Russia out of India. Peter Rutland, newly commissioned into the Royal Artillery, has been posted to Kurram with his Battery of 'Screw Guns'. Peter is puzzled that his father, a retired Major who had served in Afghanistan in 1840, asks him to resign his commission. The reason is a 'curse' on the Rutland name. "When your blood returns, it will darken the stones of our valley." This courageous and inexperienced officer embarks on a hazardous mission to return a precious holy relic to the religous Afghan clerics. The second in the Rutland Series is 'Rutland's Guns' based on the Boer War in South Africa 1898-1902. Available from Amazon Details are on

Reviews - What do customers think about Rutland's Curse?

A great whiff of gun smoke  Mar 26, 2008
This is not only one of the better books when it comes to historical accuracy but one that delivers an absolutely first class read. I have not come across a novel that captures the Afghanistan conflict so well ... or one that displays such excellent attention to detail. Anyone with a passion for military accuracy will find themselves applauding the fascinating detail and the obvious hours of research that the author has undertaken.
If you are a fan of "Sharpe", you will be delighted at the arrival of Roger Carpener's "Peter Rutland" ... a character that you will undoubtedly enjoy following as much as Bernard Cornwell's hero for many years to come.

A Professional Opinion  Jan 4, 2008
"This story completely absorbed me - I felt that I had actually been there watching the gunners at work. The dialogue is excellent. It was a great read."
Quote from Admiral J. Stark, United States Navy
Dire novel  Dec 31, 2007
Wooden dialogue and trite cliche characters thet conform to lazy racial sterio types. Could have been written by G A Henty on a bad day.
