1356: Battle of Poitiers (A Novel)
Bernard Cornwell, the 'master of martial fiction' (Booklist), brings Thomas of Hookton from the popular Grail Quest series into a new adventure in 1356 -- the Battle of Poitiers on September 19, 1356 between a heavily outnumbered English army and the French. Cornwell resurrects this dramatic and bloody struggle - one that would turn out to be the most decisive and improbable victory of the Hundred Years' War -- as the clash where the underdog English not only the captured the strategic site of Poitiers, but the French King John II as well.
In the vein of Cornwell's bestselling Agincourt, 1356 is an action-packed novel of danger and conquest, rich with military strategy and remarkable characters-both villainous and heroic-transporting readers to the front lines of war while painting a vivid picture of courage, treachery, and combat.
