Narrated by Mike Harris
This audiobook is set during the war between England in France and is set in the backdrop of a castle in Normandy. G.A. Henty writes the quintessential English war epic. Young English squire, Guy Almer, finds himself and his charges are surrounded by a guild of French butchers calling themselves the White Hoods. This is a story about facing insurmountable odds and succeeding through sheer will, tenacity, and courage and with the help of a dangerous new Welsh weapon called the Longbow.
Our hero is man named Guy Almer, an English squire and the son of a knight. He goes to France, where his lord’s castle lies but things quickly go south when they are suddenly attacked by Orleanist forces. After several attempts to escape, Almer is finally able to get away from his captors and goes to King Henry V for assistance. They return back to drive away the White Hoods in a battle that will test the mettle of Guy Almer and his army.
This is G.A. Henty’s essential history war audiobook that injects an exciting fictional backstory in an already interesting part of history. The sweeping battle scenes and the exciting set pieces set this apart from other fictional adaptation of history. This is a true classic worthy to be brought to the big screen.
