Kemp: The Road to Crecy - HALL, Daniel

Orion, 1996, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Leans slightly otherwise a very well presented copy.

From the cover: “For Martin Kemp the choice is easy. Face death by hanging for a rape and murder he did not commit or take his longbow and follow the king on his latest foray against the French. Martin’s fellow archers are liars, thieves, poachers and brigands; killers wearing a motley array of rags and cast-off pieces of armour. His war is a terrifying odyssey through the panic and confusion of his first battle, the brutal realities of siege warfare and eventually to the field of Crécy where he faces the armoured might of the French Nobility. Crécy: a battle where Martin Kemp and the other longbowmen of Edward III will make bloody history.”
