The Thirty Years’ War was an epic struggle between many European nations between 1618 and 1648. The war began as a struggle between Catholics and Protestant. It eventually pulled in every major power in Europe, morphing into a struggle to see if the France-Hapsburg line would maintain the pre-eminent role over Europe. The war caused great suffering, leaving many parts of Europe devastated, and the people starving. In G.A. Henty’s Won by the Sword, young Scotsman Hector Campbell becomes involved in the events of the war, fighting in important battles at Freiburg, Mariental, and Nordlingen, and attempting an escape after being taken prisoner. Alacrity Press is proud to reprint Henty’s classic, Won by the Sword. The story is set in 17th century Britain and mainland Europe.

About the Author:

G.A. Henty (1832-1902) was a prolific author and journalist in the 19th century. Drawing on his experience and knowledge as a war correspondent, Henty was a master of weaving history into his fictional stories about courageous young men living in difficult times marked by military conflict. His stories provide insight into some of the greatest conflicts of history while introducing the reader to characters that embodied the values of integrity, duty and virtue. While aimed at older children and teens, even adults will enjoy his writings.
