Publishers Description
Britain's challenge to mighty Napoleon, who has taken over Europe and now seeks to subdue Spain, provides the background for the two complete books in this volume. In The Flying Ensign, a small British army under Sir John Moore, in the winter of 1808, makes an audacious strike through the rugged mountains of Leon. Into this factual historical scenario, enthralling in itself, author Showell Styles places the captivating fictional character of Ensign Peter Byrd. Joined by various and colorful companions, Ensign Byrd, a youthful mountaineer from Cumberland on his first military campaign with the Fighting 95th, proves his mettle as an innovative thinker and leader. The next summer in Byrd of the 95th, an urgent plea from Anita, a Spanish damsel-patriot, and her father catapult Byrd once again into action and trouble. Issues of crucial military importance as well as questions of personal honor center on the nearly impregnable fortress, "El Cuchillo," where they reveal developing strength of character, awakening love, and all-round resourcefulness. Move over, Lieutenant Septimus Quinn (Midshipman Quinn Collection, page 7.)

Reviews - What do our customers think?
If you like Septimus Quinn and want more, try Peter Byrd  Apr 7, 2006
Frank Showell Styles (1908-2005) wrote more than 100 books. His titles include mysteries under his own name and pseudonym Glyn Carr, juvenile and adult military/history novels, and many books on climbing and mountaineering.

Ensign Byrd speaks for his creator when he says, "As for me, I have lived all my life among mountains." Styles began climbing as a teen in Wales and continued into his 80s. He worked in a bank in the 1930s, but gave it up late in the decade to tramp through France and the Pyrenees. Styles served in the British Navy during WWII, primarily in the Mediterranean.

He wrote part-time before the war, publishing his first novel, Traitor's Mountain, and several climbing books. At war's end, he decided to write full-time. Styles climbed in the Middle East, Norway and the Himalayas in the 1950s, and in the British Isles until late in his long life.

Reminiscences I read of "Pip" Showell Styles agree on his love of mountains, of walking/hiking, and especially on his youthful enthusiasm toward life. His sense of wonder was strong.

Most of Styles's books are out of print. I hope to find The Shop in the Mountain, The Ladder of Snow, A Necklace of Glaciers, and others he penned. I thank Bethlehem Budget Books for publishing the Midshipman Quinn and Flying Ensign tales. If you loved Septimus Quinn and want more, try Peter Byrd. You'll gobble up this book.
 
Revies of Showell Styles  Aug 9, 2005
I first read this book twenty years ago and it is still just as refreshing. This book portrays a standard of behaviour; viz,to fight hard, fairly and gentlemanly, and it describes qualities of respect and resourcefulness, which we need to re-discover.

 
Awesome  Feb 26, 2005
Its an easy and enjoyable read. Don't expect it to be the best book of your life but its interesting and well done.

Recommend for young readers looking for another adventure novel.
