5.0 out of 5 stars Thirty Years War history 26 Mar. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
This book picks up where "The Lion of the North" left off, in the story of the Thirty Years War. As Hector Campbell answers an officer's questions about the make-believe war that he and his fellow-comrades are doing Hector never imagines it could be the great Turenne. But before long Hector is counted a part of Turenne's household, where he is involved in several dangerous escapades. First Hector, along with his boy-servant Paolo, creep through the town of Turin and send a message into the citadel, where a group of Protestants are holding out against the Catholics and their friends, something that quite a few had found impossible to do. Later, Hector, along with five friends, rescues the Baroness of Blenfiox and her daughter Norah from an attack by several hundred peasants. Hector also stumbles into a robber's den, where he and his retainer must fight for their lives. But the gallant officer does not stop there, instead he not only thwarts a plan to kill Marzarin, but also kills Monsieur de Beauvais, a very good swordsman who challenged Hector to a duel. This book is full of courage, a book that you will benefit greatly from. And for anyone who likes history, this book is a must!

This is yet another Henty masterpiece taking us back in time to a realistic look at life in France in the 17th century as they fought battle after battle in order to maintain their national identity through the efforts of noble men who faced adversity and stood strong in character
