England, 1346: for Thomas Blackstone the choice is easy—dance on the end of a rope for a murder he did not commit, or take up his war bow and join the king's invasion of France.As he fights his way across northern France, Blackstone will learn the brutal lessons of war—from the terror and confusion of his first taste of combat, to the savage realities of siege warfare.Vastly outnumbered, Edward III's army will finally confront the armored might of the French nobility on the field of Crécy. It is a battle that will change the history of warfare, a battle that will change the course of Blackstone's life, a battle that is just the first chapter in a book of legend—Blackstone: Master of War.

Review:

'Like a punch from a mailed fist, MASTER OF WAR gives a true taste of the Hundred Years War. It is a gripping chronicle of pitched battle, treachery and cruelty. The stench and harshness of medieval life is ever present' Robert Fabbri, bestselling author of the Vespasian series. 'If you only read one historical debut this year, make it this one. The prose is sharper than a bodkin arrow, the pace faster than thought and it was a book I just couldn't put down' Falcata Times. 'Page-turning and gritty' Daily Mail. 'The 100 Years' War is the new Rome for historical adventure novels' Ben Kane. 'I see flashes of brilliance that surpass Bernard Cornwell' The Bookbag. 'I'm totally bedazzled. I'd never thought that another writer could rival Bernard Cornwell when it came to dramatizing battles, but David is giving him a real run for his money. The battle scenes are so realistic it is almost like time-traveling, though definitely not for the faint of heart. Thomas is an incredibly appealing and sympathetic character. And the level of suspense is ratcheted up to a truly brutal level, for it is impossible for a reader to predict what will be coming next' Sharon Penman.
