Amid the carnage of the 100 Years War – the bloodiest confilct in medieval history – a young English archer confronts his destiny...

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.

As he fights his way across northern France, Blackstone learns 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 will forge a legend.

David Gilman enjoyed many careers – including firefighter, paratrooper and photographer – before turning to writing full time. He is an award-winning author and screenwriter.

The bestselling eBook, now reissued in paperback.

Extra content: battle maps and chronology.

The first book in an epic 100 Years' War trilogy.

MARKET: Conn Iggulden; Bernard Cornwell.
