At dawn on Easter morning 1343, a marauding band of French raiders arrives by boat to ambush the coastal English village of Hookton. To brave young Thomas, the only survivor, the horror of the attack is epitomized in the casual savagery of a particular black-clad knight, whose flag--three yellow hawks on a blue field--presides over the bloody affair. As the killers sail away, Thomas vows to avenge the murder of his townspeople and to recapture a holy treasure that the black knight stole from the church. To do this, Thomas of Hookton must first make his way to France; So in 1343 he joins the army of King Edward III as it is about to invade the continent--the beginning of the Hundred Years War. A preternaturally gifted bowman, Thomas quickly becomes recognized as one of England's most deadly archers in King Edward's march across France. Yet he never stops scanning the horizon for his true enemy's flag. When Thomas saves a young Frenchwoman from a bloodthirsty crowd, her father--French nobleman Sir Guillaume d'Evecque--rewards his bravery by joining him in the hunt for the mysterious dark knight and the stolen holy relic. What begins as a search for vengeance will soon prove the beginning of an even higher purpose: the quest for the Holy Grail itself.… (mehr)

Excelente. As descrições de batalhas do início da guerra dos cem anos que o autor faz são sensacionais. Enredo muito bom. ( )

This is my first time reading Cornwell. I don't generally like so much telling in place of showing, but he moves his story more quickly this way and I'm impressed with the degree of historical detail. There's lots to learn about the 14th century in northern France, especially military history, in the context of a fast-paced adventure structured around historical incidents. I've gathered the primary reason to read Cornwell is for a boots-on-the-ground viewpoint during whatever battles he's covering. The Battle of Caen (1346), for example, is much more visceral here than reading dry Wikipedia facts.

It took me a while to warm up to Thomas of Hookton, since he's not exactly a standup guy. When his initial love interest gets kidnapped, our hero only feels relief that he need no longer worry about her pregnancy. Cornwell doesn't sugarcoat it when Thomas' band is roaming the French countryside, destroying lives and livlihoods; it's dirty work, not heroic thrills. As an English archer Thomas is feared and hated by his enemies, for killing from a distance and being heedless of chivalry. Character growth eventually kicks in, and he's aided by contrast with others in the story of similar rank. The plot is more impressive than Thomas. Considering it's "on rails" - forced to fit with actual historical events - Cornwell is surprisingly creative. It took a few turns that I didn't anticipate, and drew in a broader cross-section of society than just army ranks. This promises to be a good series for anyone welcoming (or who can abide) an extra dose of military in their historical fiction. ( )

What comes first when I think of this novel is how the archer, despite serious injury to his ribs, crawled for no apparent reason over the top of buildings to shoot his bow at people. That's almost all I can remember of the story. ( )

Takes a while to get into but its worth it. This is a good series. Crecy is well described together with the typical conflict. ( )

Set in the 1340's, Bernard Cornwell, has captured the spirit and essense of life at this time. Magnificently researched, with vivid descriptions of battles, the reader can almost hear the clash of swords, the thump and hiss of arrows being fired, the screams of horses and men, and smell the blood and smoke of the battle. Fans of Historical Fiction should not miss this series!

"... many deadly battles have been fought, people slaughtered, churches robbed, souls destroyed, young women and virgins deflowered, respectable wives and widows dishonoured; towns, manors and building burned, and robberies, cruelties and ambushes committed on the highways. Justice has failed because of these things. The Christian faith has withered and commerce has perished and so many other wickednesses and horrid things have followed from these wars that they cannot be spoken, numbered or written down." - Jean II, King of France, 1360
