Master of War Boxset: Books 1-3 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Amid the carnage of the 100 Years War - the bloodiest conflict in medieval history - a young English archer confronts his destiny....
England, 1346: For Thomas Blackstone, the choice is easy - dance on the end of a rope for a murder he did not commit, or take up his war bow and join the king's invasion.
As he fights his way across northern France, Blackstone learns the brutal lessons of war - from the terror and confusion of his first taste of combat, to the savage realities of siege warfare.
Blackstone will brave the terrors of the High Alps in winter, face the Black Prince in tournament, confront the bloody anarchy of a popular revolt, and emerge from the Battle of Crecy as a knight.
He may yet defy death but he can't defy his destiny: Master of War.
Collected in a single volume for the first time, the first three novels in the epic Master of War series, comprising of: Master of War, Defiant unto Death, and Gate of the Dead.

The books in this series are not military history, but historical novels, albeit with lots of blood and gore, perhaps even too much. There is also a song romantic strand within the overall story, sex is mentioned but hardly ever described. The protagonist's progress sometimes seems on the miraculous side, but not often. I rated this set at five stars as a set of historical novels that could be enjoyed by any reader interested in this genre.
He is knighted and nursed back to life in a Norman's castle. He learns to become a swordsman and leads a group of men in the ongoing wars. He marries and takes part in the battle of Poitiers in 1356, and then he and his men take a job as mercenaries in the Italien wars between Florens and Milan. In 1358 he is called back to London and sent back to France on the King's orders to help conquer the French crown. Hiswife and daughter are murdered and Thomas disappeares ....
Don't worry. The series continues, and I have just starter Viper's Blood starting in 1360 with Thomas an his men taking part in the attempt to take Rheims.
the first book in this series had been entered into several of my 'Collections" ; Historical fiction, Novels read, Series to consider, Novels to recommend, and Favorites. So, without further thought I purchased the box set and thank goodness it was being offered at a special price. Because I after finishing it I purchased the 4th and 5th books of the series.
I am truly hooked, on the excitement, the characters, and the intrigue!
