Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Warren Ellis Crecy (Paperback)
That's what you shout to let your fellow longbowmen know you're shooting an arrow!
This is a history lesson that you would never forget! Told brilliantly in my opinion.It's the narritive through the eyes of an English longbowman of the English invasion of France and march ultimately to Crecy where the final battle takes place.
The drawrings throughout the book (as it's told in a graphic novel format) do portray the gritty, damp, dirty conditions that the English endured during their long march and battle with the French and their paid mercenaries. It's attention to possibly lesser known interesting details is spot on and gets across the grusome way war was waged back then.One thing I would say is that there are a lot of profanities spoken throughout. This is aimed at adults I would imagine.
Very good though.
