Review - Warrior

It took the first half of the book to get Hervey to Africa and then another several chapters before any action took place. And when the action happened, it was basically an account of the British retreating before an army of Zulus. I've read the earlier books in the series, but not so closely together that I'm able to keep track of the various characters, and I don't find myself greatly caring about any of them.
