Following Ludlow's earlier novels set in eleventh-century Europe, the de Hautville warrior dynasty shows no sign of falling back into obscurity.
Under Robert Guiscard, the de Hautevilles have grown in importance and power throughout Italy and, through the Papacy, all of Christendom. Now it is Robert’s son Bohemund’s turn to take up arms – the opportunity to fight under the papal banner in the Holy Lands could bring him the glory and riches he desires and which have been cruelly denied him elsewhere.
Ludlow has made a name for himself in the historical adventure genre with stand-out titles such as The Pillars of Rome and Mercenaries, this new series takes us from the Norman Conquest to the age of the crusaders.

JACK LUDLOW is the pseudonym of David Donachie, who was born in Edinburgh in 1944. The author of a number of bestselling books, he now lives in Deal with his wife, the novelist Sarah Grazebrook. He is active on the event circuit and is an extremely eloquent and engaging speaker.Review:
"Land battles, and especially those at sea or in harbour, are reported with clarity and precision. The author, assured and convincing, is to be congratulated, likewise on the whole background of time and place... It is an ideal book for students needing to understand the gritty intransigence of Norman invaders who had so much to gain or lose in that turbulent world." (Historical Novels Review)
