1356 Summary

1356 by Bernard Cornwell

Go with God and Fight Like the Devil. The remarkable new novel by Britain's master storyteller, which culminates at the Battle of Poitiers.

1356: France stands alert to danger. The English army, victorious at the battle of Crecy and led by the Black Prince, is invading and the French are hunting them down. The bloodiest battles of the Hundred Years War are yet to be fought.

Thomas of Hookton, an English archer, becomes trapped with his outnumbered army. And here, near the town of Poitiers, an extraordinary confrontation will ignite one of the greatest battles of all time.
