Reviews for Watson's Afghan Adventure - How Sherlock Holmes' Dr.Watson Became an Army Doctor
In one word, super.
McMullen's army background really comes out in this book. As a Watson fan I was looking forward to reading it but found myself really taken by the authentic feel - like it have been written by someone who was there - which I guess is the case. In his bio he mentions the civil war renactment and that again isn't surprising as throughout the book the detail on the weapons of the era is excellent. Will be enjoyed not just by Holmes pastiche fans, but also those into military history. by Timea Pal
