 Master of War, 4

'A gripping chronicle of pitched battle, treachery and cruelty' ROBERT FABBRI.

Provoked by the Dauphin's refusal to honour the terms of his father's surrender, Edward III has invaded France with the greatest army England has ever assembled. But the English lion's attempts to claw the French crown from its master are futile. After defeats at Crècy and Poitiers, the Dauphin will no longer meet the English in the field.

Mired down in costly sieges and facing a stalemate, Edward's great army is forced to argee a treaty. But peace comes at a price. The French request that Blackstone escort their King's daughter to Italy to see her married to one of the two brothers who rule Milan – the same brothers who killed Blackstone's family to revenge the defeats they suffered at his hand.

Blackstone, the French are certain, will never leave Milan alive...

REVIEWS
’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, bestselling author of the Vespasian series
'The fourth novel in David Gilman's powerful and uncompromising chronicle of the Hundred Years War ... Viper's Blood an exciting, bloody and well-written tale of Europe at a time of terrible crisis ... A fine addition to a series that continues to bring these cruel years to life in such rich and meticulous detail'
For Winter Nights
'Book Four in the Master of War series and the bone-crunching intensity of this series shows no signs of abating ... As ever David Gilman provides us with a well-researched book set right in the heart of the action of 1300's war-torn Europe ... With Gilman's writing, you can feel the ooze of the mud, the bite of the cold, most of all you can feel the weight of the sword and armour, the draw and weight of the bow and the rushing death of the arrow storm and the disregard of mortality. But if you mistake this book and series for just the hack of the sword you would be missing out on so much more depth ... A truly excellent book and part of an excellent series'
