Go with God and Fight Like the Devil. A fascinating hero and the pursuit of a sword with mythical power - this is the remarkable new novel by Britain’s master storyteller, which culminates at the Battle of Poitiers in 1356.

The Hundred Years War rages on and the bloodiest battles are yet to be fought. Across France, towns are closing their gates, the crops are burning and the country stands alert to danger. The English army, victorious at the Battle of Crécy and led by the Black Prince, is invading again and the French are hunting them down.

Thomas of Hookton, an English archer known as Le Bâtard, is under orders to seek out the lost sword of St Peter, a weapon said to grant certain victory to whoever possesses her. As the outnumbered English army becomes trapped near the town of Poitiers, Thomas, his men and his sworn enemies meet in an extraordinary confrontation that ignites one of the greatest battles of all time.

Book Description Harper Paperbacks, United States, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. From New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell, now available in paperback--a thrilling tale of danger and conquest at the Battle of Poitiers, 1356 is a book in which Cornwell s gifts as scholar and storyteller come together spectacularly. (Washington Post) Bernard Cornwell, the master of martial fiction (Booklist), brings Thomas of Hookton from the popular Grail Quest series into a new adventure in 1356, a thrilling stand-alone novel. On September 19, 1356, a heavily outnumbered English army faced off against the French in the historic Battle of Poitiers. In 1356, 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, a 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 story 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.
