Product description


'The Black Prince is one of the great romantic heroes of the Hundred Years War and in Michael Jones he has a worthy biographer. This is a clear-eyed and thrilling vision of the man behind the legend and a splendid introduction to one of the most fascinating periods in medieval history' Dan Jones

'Jones has done an excellent job ... It is not easy to make somebody so far back in history really come alive, but this book has pulled it off extremely well. It is supplemented with several pages of maps, battle plans and a detailed timeline' The Bookbag

'Michael Jones superbly brings to life the campaigns and battles which made the Black Prince's name ... The hero and the villain were one man and Jones does justice to this complexity' The Times

'Splendid ... Jones convincingly argues that Edward should not be too readily condemned [...] with great skill and lightly worn erudition ... Will enthral a wide audience' Spectator

'Get to know the heir of Edward III in all his guises in this accomplished volume' Historical Trips UK

'Fascinating ... restores one of our great heroes to his rightful position' Daily Mail

'Sure to enlighten and entertain thanks to the author's use of new archival research and his pacy, atmospheric writing style' History Revealed

'Michael Jones researches as a historian but writes as a novelist. His characters are fresh and realistic ... Even readers who know nothing of this period of history will be captured by this warm and lively portrait of the Black Prince' Philippa Gregory

'Offers a thoughtful, rounded picture of a man who led not solely by virtue of birth, but through personality and achievement, too' The Tablet

'A gripping read; it has that 'just one more chapter' quality that keeps you going late into the night ... A compelling and humane portrait of a medieval warrior, bringing the Black Prince and his world triumphantly to life' David Santiuste

'A thoroughly riveting biography of Edward of Woodstock' Military History Monthly

'Pacy, vivid and extremely readable...Jones's book will appeal to a wide spectrum of readers' Times Literary Supplement

'A fascinating biography' BBC History Magazine Book of the Year (2017)

'Compellingly readable...Jones has given us a superb new study of the Black Prince' History

'A fine biography...informed and insightful' Wall Street Journal

Book Description
