We are always on the look-out for good books at RICKARO

The Matthew Hervey novels of Allan Mallinson.
At Rickaro Books we have a interest in military writing, this includes non-fiction accounts and manuals, but we also have a liking for good accurate fiction such as the writings of Patrick O'Brien and Allan Mallinson. In particular we like to have in stock titles of the acclaimed series of Mallinson works featuring Matthew Hervey of the Light Dragoons. There are now eight in the series: A CLOSE RUN THING, THE NIZAM'S DAUGHTER, A REGIMENTAL AFFAIR, A CALL TO ARMS, THE SABRE'S EDGE, RUMOURS OF WAR, AN ACT OF COURAGE and the latest COMPANY OF SPEARS. These are becoming harder to find in good hardcover first editions but we have the paperbacks if you just want a good read.
