G.A. Henty novels are highly researched as well as drawn from his first-hand experiences of people, places, and events. No portion of English history is more crowded with great events than the 100 Years’ War from 1337-1453 under King Edward III and his son, the “Black Prince.” The Battles of Cressy and Poitiers; the destruction of the Spanish fleet; the plague of the Black Death; and the Jacquerie rising are vividly related in this historically accurate adventure novel.
Walter Somers, although of good family, begins life as a London apprentice, but after countless adventures and perils, by valor and good conduct, becomes a squire, and at last the trusted friend of the Black Prince.

Incorrect minor details and pronunciations took away any pleasure. Struggled to finish this book. Needs editing and perhaps a British narrator.
