Man of War is the story of Henry Deane, a young Englishman who joins the French army in the late 1400s to fight in the Hundred Years' War. The novel follows his journey as he becomes a skilled soldier and participates in some of the most famous battles of the era, including the Battle of Agincourt and the Battle of Crecy. As the war progresses, Henry becomes disillusioned with the French army and decides to desert. He is eventually captured and sent to the galleys, where he spends the rest of the war. Man of War is an epic tale of adventure and conquest, and it is an excellent portrayal of the medieval period.; 8vo ; 313 pages.
