A good following book to The Sword Brothers with plenty of action, some successful, some less so. I have to admit thet before reading The Sword Brothers that I had no idea that crusaders had christianised the baltic states - Latvia, Lithuania, etc. so this was a learning curve, all be it fictionalised. I would suggestst that to better understand The Army of the Wolf, first read The Sword Brothers, which is an equally good read if you like historical books with plenty of action. I think that Peter Darman puts into a book of fiction many of the probable alliances of the time, the living and existing conditions, and sets the story into the reality of that period of history. Both books are worth reading, both for the history, completely new to me, and the various plots and subplots, and of course the action.
