The Cornet of Horse, by G. A. Henty (1832 - 1902)

This is an abandoned solo, brought back to the battle line to continue the fight to make the catalog!
Rupert Holiday is forced to flee England after wounding a miscreant in fight, and joins the Duke of Marlborough in his campaigns during the War of Spanish Succession. Rupert has many adventures and hairbreadth escapes, as he greatly distinguishes himself during the conflict. This was one of Henty's earliest books, and helped launch Henty's career as a Historical Fiction writer. (Charles P. Sapp) (Summary by )

Welcome to LibriVox! I have you down for sections 7 and 8, thank you! Please make sure to do your one minute test before you start recording, just so that we can make sure that your settings are where we need them to be. What name would you like credited on your catalog page?
