Publisher's Summary

England, 1346. For Thomas Blackstone the choice is easy - dance on the end of a rope for a murder he did not commit, or join the king's invasion. As he fights his way across Northern France, Blackstone learns the brutal lessons of war.
Vastly outnumbered, Edward III's army will finally confront the armoured might of the French nobility on the field of Crécy. It is a battle that will change the history of warfare.

Look out Bernard Cornwall

I love historic based war books
Bernard Cornwall fans will love it.
Relentless grit and storyline twists, kept me on the edge of my airline seat from Australia to England. Well the seat wasn't that big.
Cheers Gordon
