The Regiment

(1988)
(The first book in the Regiment Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
 
The Boer War is brewing in South Africa, and the Royal Western Dragoon Guards are bound for the front line.

In their ranks is the young subaltern Murdoch Mackinder, the latest in the long line of Mackinders who have, in their time, commanded the Royal Westerns across the whole of the British Empire.

Seeing battle for the first time against the Boers, Murdoch quickly and painfully learns that the British Army will need to find new ways of fighting modern wars, as the fear of a major European conflict grows ever stronger.

Rising through the ranks of his regiment and gradually becoming its most famous and decorated member, Murdoch also comes to see that much more than courage under fire will be needed to live his life as a soldier, and a man.

'The Regiment' is a brilliantly told story of military life that is rich in adventure and period detail.

'... told with smooth authenticity' - Publishers' Weekly [on Amazon]

'... military saga covering the years from the Boer War through WW I. Bosoms still heave and legs still flash, but they're background colour in the story of Murdoch Mackinder and his career in the family regiment' - Kirkus Review

'Well-researched... Evocative descriptions of scenery and edifices, and exact period dialogue' - Historical Novels Society [on another of Nicole's novels, Manu]
