This review is from: A Bloody Field by Shrewsbury (Paperback)
Bringing history to life, this is a skillfully written historical novel which adds a fitting human element. Hotspur is the brave knight but also flawed by naivety and his rash nature. Henry the usurper King, haunted by his own inner demons. The young Prince Hal, loves and admires Hotspur but with an undeniable belief in his right to the crown he is set to inherit. Adding the element of Julian Parry allows us to see another element of Sir Percy's character and is also of course a great plot device. An excellent read which easily stands reading again and again.
