I have completed about 20% of the new Casca story, The Austrian, set in 1683. The tale will be about the heroic defence of Vienna by the Austrians against a huge Turkish army that was intent on adding Austria to the lands of the Muslim Ottoman Empire.
There will be some gritty hand-to-hand combat, a massive battle where the Christian forces of Poland, Germany and Austria combine to fight the Turks outside the embattled city, and within Vienna itself, a smaller conflict as the Longini battle the Brotherhood.
Here’s the general kind of uniform/weaponry the story will contain…

With Amazon becoming more and more draconian – they have removed a perfectly good review of one of my books and blocked others from leaving one, and they have pulled down the main amazon Casca shop because of some minor anomaly – I’ve opened out the shop for reviews. All you need to do is to go to that particular product and at the bottom of the page is a review box. As long as you’re registered with me you can leave one and I’ll approve it provided it doesn’t violate obvious boundaries. I’ve left a review I’ve cut and pasted on Casca 45 as an example for you here
