LoveReading View on The Ill-Made Knight

A knight, asking for directions to get lodgings from the gate captain, gets sent to the White Swan, Chaucer’s stamping ground. He is persuaded to recount his story. So from orphan to knight we follow Sir William through battle after battle during the 100-year war starting with the Battles of Poitiers in 1356 and going through to 1362. It is a great period of history which begins a new series.

Sarah Broadhurst

The Ill-Made Knight Synopsis

September, 1356. Poitiers. The greatest knights of the age were ready to give battle. On the English side Edward, the Black Prince, who'd earned his spurs at Crecy. On the French side, the King and his son, the Dauphin. With 12,000 knights. And then there is William Gold. A cook's boy - the lowest of the low - who had once been branded as a thief. William dreams of being a knight, but in this savage new world of intrigue, betrayal and greed, first he must learn to survive. As rapacious English mercenaries plunder a country already ravaged by plague, and the peasantry take violent revenge against the French knights who have failed to protect them, is chivalry any more than a boyish fantasy?
