"The tension and action of the battle and the intense danger of the escape from the massacre will keep readers turning these pages." Quill & Quire

To Jack O'Hara, recently arrived from Canada to live with his aunt in Cawnpore, India is an exotic place of wonder and mystery, but war and horror are bubbling just below the surface. When the violence explodes, Jack and a thousand soldiers, women and children must fight for their lives, trapped in an inadequate entrenchment under the brutal summer sun. As the survivors watch the bodies pile up around them, there is little they can do except pray that a relief column can reach them before starvation and massacre end the tragedy.

"This is an absolutely terrific book...Never lagging with a credible hero and an exotic setting...The pacing is flawless." Geoffrey Bilson Award for Historical Fiction Jury Citation

The Caught in Conflict Collection is an imprint of fast-paced, historically accurate, morally-complex quick reads for Adults and Teens. In each of the titles the main character(s) (a Roman Legionary; a civilian in the Indian Mutiny; volunteers on both sides of the American Civil War; a Scottish soldier in WWI; a holidaymaker in Spain when the civil war breaks out there; and German and Russian soldiers in WWII), become enmeshed in conflicts immensely more complex than they anticipated and are faced with moral dilemmas that they never even imagined. The historical background to each of the dramas is extensively researched and the moral dilemmas are common to all human conflict.
