Master of War

Author(s): David Gilman

Fiction - Historical

England, 1346: for Thomas Blackstone the choice is easy--dance on the end of a rope for a murder he did not commit, or take up his war bow and join the king's invasion of France.As he fights his way across northern France, Blackstone will learn the brutal lessons of war--from the terror and confusion of his first taste of combat, to the savage realities of siege warfare.Vastly outnumbered, Edward III's army will finally confront the armored might of the French nobility on the field of Crécy. It is a battle that will change the history of warfare, a battle that will change the course of Blackstone's life, a battle that is just the first chapter in a book of legend--Blackstone: Master of War.
