Having read the Flashman, Sharp and Hervey collections over the years I now see on my Amazon recomendation list many new ones. So I have dipped into Ian Gale (Napoleonic), Patrick Mercer (Crimea) and Adrian Goldsworthy (Napoleonic) but I have become a little disillusioned with the collections, there is a pattern in each that seems to follow the same themes regardless of author. But the characters seem less convincing in each. So dear ARRSERS of the new batches which collection should I be reading? Or is it just a case of a range of authors jumping on the bandwagon and Flashman is the only good collection?
