Summary

A tale set in England in the time of Cressy and Pointiers. A child of noble birth whose parents have fallen foul of the current royalty is taken by his dying mother and placed in hiding. He grows up with a bowyer and then apprenticed to an armourer just outside the gates of the City of London, becomes accomplished in arms and joins the campaign in France.A tale of heroism and 14th century viciousness. Great fun.

Reviews

DantheMan

- Good narration with icky material

The narration is as high-quality as I always expect from this narrator. But Henty's elitist bent is perhaps at its strongest here. I couldn't finish. One of the 28th is much better.
