We meet brothers Thomas and Richard rescued from the hangman’s rope and sent to France to fight in the 100 Years War. With battles, damsons in distress, suspicion amongst the brothers, bravery and its rewards, this begins a series which is fast-paced and enjoyable and explores the political and social background to the war as well as developing the various character’s stories. I feel the series will have a lot going for it.

If you like David Gilman you might also like to read books by Tim Willocks, Stewart Binns and Christian Cameron.

Synopsis

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. 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 Crecy. 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.

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.
