Looks like another rousing tale of Casca. As some of you may know, I prefer the stories of Casca that occur during what I call the “sword-era”, where the main weapons are swords and the like, as opposed to the “gun-era”, where various types of firearms are the main weapons. However, for me, this time period is sort of a grey line between the two eras. The somewhat primitive guns are single shot, and any close in fighting involves “swords”, since the guns can’t be reloaded fast enough. This is also why I enjoy pirate stories, even with canons. Plenty of sword-fighting.
Looking online for some pictures of soldiers of this time period, there seems to be plenty of armored cavalry and foot soldiers. For instance, it seems that the unusual Polish “winged” cavalry was present at this time. Any chance they are in this story?
Looking forward to this next adventure.

Andy, yes you got this bang on right. And yes, the Battle of Kahlenberg will feature with those winged Hussars, the biggest cavalry charge in history, apparently. Think of the Lord of the Rings when the cavalry charge the army of Mordor in the flank as they are attacking the city. Not quite like that but it gives you an idea.

I recently wrote two Amazon reviews of this exciting tale,one for the printed edition and one for the Kindle edition. In the printed edition, I suggested going to the Kindle edition page to “Look Inside” some sample pages (for some reason, this feature is not in the printed version). I then listed the URL for this Kindle edition.

For the Kindle edition, I suggested going to the printed version for 3 additional reviews, since the Kindle edition had only my review. I also then listed the URL for this printed edition.

I was wondering when #48 was going to come out on Kindle, as that is my primary reading source. Right now all that is available is the preview.

There must be something wrong, all amazon gives me is the 2 chapter sample. Then usually when the book is out I can just order it and it downloads the rest. I can not do that here. Can you see if something is wrong on the amazon site. All it says is download sample

I really have no idea what is wrong; so far this month about 15-20 Austrians have been purchased on kindle on the main site and no errors have been reported.

I’m not sure what is wrong with your purchasing options. you may try to use a different internet application, like chrome or IE or firefox, just to see if its some software issue.

I’ve not had any other notification there’s something amiss.
