Master of War by David Gilman

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 armoured 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.

Peer & Press Reviews

If you only read one historical debut this year, make it this one.  The prose is sharper than a bodkin arrow, the pace faster than thought and it was a book I just couldn’t put down.

Falcata Times

Like a punch from a mailed fist, Master of War gives a true taste of the Hundred Years War.  It is a gripping chronicle of pitched battle, treachery and cruelty.  The stench and harshness of medieval life is ever present.

Robert Fabbri, author of the Vespasian series

The 100 Years’ War is the new Rome for historical adventure novels.

Ben Kane, author of the Eagles of Rome series
