finally, a book in English about the hundred years war from the French perspective.
It follows Bertrand de Guiselin, the constable of france, an ugly but heroic knight who held off the English for the first half of the war
The other review kind of spoils the mystery in this novel. But its a good one. A good example of the pits of capitalism.
More fun than his Fu Manchu stuff.
A generally good book about an uprising in South Africa.
Imagine if you will, an infestation of flying jungle Octopi. If you can, you have a better imagination than me.
