The Drums of War

(1978)
A novel by

 
 
The rousing novel by Roy Clews. Young Corporal Jethro Stanton is comfortable in the militia of the home guard back in England when he's among the troops called to fight with Wellington against Napoleon on the Spanish Peninsula. So it's off to the war, where Jethro --whose social conscience dictates that he must prove his own combat mettle before presuming to be a leader-- proves a coward in his first battle. And before he eventually redeems himself, he is taken prisoner. Properly gory scenes on battlefield and in hospital, overdrawn characters and stock situations, but a bit more grit and realistic scratch than in more romanticized derring-do's.
