Product description

Review

'An enthralling epic of engineering, blood and battle' Mail on Sunday

'History's coolest expert brings to life some of the bloodiest battles ever fought’ Sun

‘Dan Snow does a fine job of bringing [the sieges] to life' Times

'It has been edited to look like Game of Thrones. Serious historical discovery, however, is what Battle Castle is all about' Guardian

Praise for Dan Snow:

“Many of us wondered whether Dan Snow could make the transition from fluent TV presenter to serious historian. This hugely impressive work confirms his triumphant arrival on the scene. It is by far the best account yet written of a campaign that helped shape North America, and is a fitting tribute on the 250th anniversary of that “wonderful year” 1759' Richard Holmes

"Dan Snow is perhaps more familiar from television….this, his first book, proves him to be a master military historian in the making. Its grasp of detail is prodigious" Daily Express

"lively and thoughtful…fascinating stuff….one of the book's strengths is its vivid portrayal of the physical backdrop against which the campaign unfolded" Literary Review
