Defiant Unto Death by David Gilman

FRANCE: 1356.

Ten years ago, the greatest army in Christendom was slaughtered at Crécy when Thomas Blackstone and his fellow archers stood their ground and rained death on the steel-clad might of French chivalry.  Blackstone left that squalid field a knight.

Now, Blackstone commands a war band and has carved out a small fiefdom in northern France.  But the wounds of war still bleed and a traitor has given the King of France the means to destroy first his family, and then the English knight himself.

As the traitor’s net tightens, so the French King’s army draws in.  Blackstone will stand and fight – in pitched battle and in single combat.  He will defy his friends, his family and his king.  He may yet defy death, but he can’t defy his destiny…

BLACKSTONE: MASTER OF WAR.

Peer & Press Reviews

Defiant unto Death is historical fiction at its best, a Pandora’s Box of a novel, a great novel which comes highly recommended.

Historical Novel Society

This novel is, to put it simply, marvellous.  The early Hundred Years War brought alive in all its violence, chaos and valiance…  It’s not often military historical fiction moves me to tears but this book managed it.

For Winter Nights

A vivid snapshot of 14th-century Normandy life in all its bloody, gritty glory by a great story-teller.  Historical fiction heaven!
