The subsequent campaign was no less fatal and, although large reinforcements had been sent, fifty percent of the whole died; so that less than two thousand fighting men remained in the ranks, when the expedition arrived within a short distance of Ava. Not until the last Burmese army had been scattered did the court of Ava submit to the by no means onerous terms we imposed.

Great story! Great reading. Editor - not so much
Unique plot with common Henty brilliance makes yet another wonderful romp through 19th Century coming-of-age. Great morals and values for present-day young-men-in-training, as well as young-men-at-heart.
Mike Harris is a brilliant reader, but this work needs a good round through an editorial process. Stutters, inadvertent delays, and unfortunate breathing moments interrupt a wonderful job of adding voices for characters and modifying style to match thematic and plot turns. Good job, Mike. Get an editor.
