Publisher's Summary

The Black Death! England has won the war with France, but the disease which rampages through the land takes both rich and poor, warrior and worker. John Hawkwood and his two companions spend the winter in the north. 

It is in the spring that he begins to mould his company into a fighting force, and he serves the Baron Mortimer on the Welsh Border. There his men learn to fight as one, and John Hawkwood begins the change from archer to man at arms. 

When the king and the Black Prince commission him to fight for them, first in an action against the Castilian pirates and then on a chevauchée through Gascony, he learns the skill of leadership.

Good continuation of the series, bring on the next

I must admit I do appreciate when Marston York Narrates a book and it is written by Griff Hosker. I just love reading his books.
Book two carries on from book one with John Hawkwood and his band of followers. Sir John Hawkwood probably gives it away in the title but again an easy, enthralling read. Bring on the next one.

Man at Arms

Both of the books in the John Hawkwood series were great. I throughly enjoyed them both. Hoping there are more to come in the series.
