Publisher's Summary

The Black Prince has launched a devastating raid deep into France, laying waste to everything in his path. In response, the French have mustered an army that outnumbers the English forces 10 to 1 and are determined to drive their hated foe from the land after years of bloody conquest.

Sir Thomas Blackstone, the British archer knighted on the field of Crecy, has used the intervening years to forge his own war band and has hacked out his own fiefdom in central France. He knows the English are outnumbered, outmaneuvered, and exhausted....

But that will not stop him from fighting his way to one of history's greatest military victories.

Second installment: Visceral and compelling story.

Compelling and addictive story shedding insights into many key characters. The telling of a life guided by founding experiences honed over time and underpinned by core values with a form of moral code. Well written, yet some narration somewhat wooden.

A ripping yarn about knights, archers and honour.

This book is a strong sequel to the first. The fact that it's broken down into pats makes it feel like three stories in one, each as griping as the next. I can't wait to get on with the next one!
