Description

Jack Archer

A Tale of the Crimea

The Crimean War was the first major war among Europeans since the days of Napoleon. It exposed to the whole world the need for great changes to be made in the British military. Jack Archer is a midshipman in Her Majesty’s Navy and survives many exciting times on the way to the Crimea.
Our hero has multiple adventures at Gibraltar and the battles of Alma, Bacalava, and Inkerman, but is captured and is involved in the death of a Russian official. He escapes, goes through the fall of Sebastapol. Before the final victory, he is made a prisoner, but eventually escapes of Poland and links up with partisans fighting the Russians.

About the Author

George Alfred Henty, better known as G.A. Henty, began his storytelling career with his own children. After dinner, he would spend an hour or two telling them a story that would continue the next day. Some stories took weeks to finish!  A friend was present one day and, watching the spell-bound reaction of his children, suggested that Henty write down his stories so others could enjoy them. He did and, as the saying goes, the rest is history!   Henty wrote 144 books as well as numerous stories for magazines and became known as “The Prince of Story-Tellers” and “The Boy’s Own Historian.”  One of Mr. Henty’s secretaries reported that he would quickly pace back and forth in his study, dictating stories as fast as the secretary could write them down!

Henty’s stories revolve around fictional boy heroes caught up in the events of fascinating times in history. The heroes of Henty stories are diligent, intelligent, and dedicated to their country and cause in the face of great perils.  They fight in wars, sail the seas, make discoveries, conquer evil empires, prospect for gold, and participate in a host of other exciting adventures. Along the way, they cross paths with some of history’s most famous people.  Henty’s heroes live through tumultuous historic eras, meeting leaders of that time. Every reader of Henty will gain an understanding of nations and cultures, as these are conveyed as a natural element of the reading.  They’re one of the best ways to cultivate a taste for history in any reader!
