Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1356 by Bernard Cornwell Another great read by this magnificent author.very hard to put down. It must have been very hard to live in this era not knowing if there was going to be war or peace and how you would live through it all. Cornwell decribes everything in great detail and leaves nothing to the imagination.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mr Well written solid read. The characters do not have the same warm appeal as say Sharpe and that is the only reason I do not rate it as high as the normal Cornwell Faye.
