Suberb childrens' historical fiction,
This review is from: For the King (Oxford Children's Library) (Hardcover)
I read this many years ago and sadly have mislaid my copy. This is one in a series of historical novels written by Ronald Welch chronicalling the fortunes of the enobled Cary family down the centuries following their settlement in South Wales after the Norman conquest. This one deals with the English civil war. Vivid battle descriptions, well worked discussion of the key issues of the day, knowledgeable about contempory military tactics and genuinely moving. A key text in my literary education. I cannot understand why these books have not been republished. Get a copy if you can!
