Go with God and Fight Like the Devil. A fascinating hero and
the pursuit of a sword with mythical power - this is the
remarkable new novel by Britain's master storyteller, which
culminates at the Battle of Poitiers in 1356. Thomas of
Hookton, a veteran of Crecy and many other battles, is the
leader of a mercenary company of bowmen and men-at-arms who
ravage the countryside east of Gascony. Edward, Prince of
Wales, later to be known as the Black Prince, is assembling
an army to fight the French once more but before Thomas can
join, he must fulfil an urgent task. La Malice, a sword of
mythical power guaranteeing victory to its owner, is thought
to be concealed somewhere near Poitiers. With signs that a
battle between the English and the French is looming others
are seeking the treasure too, and some - French, Scots and
even English - are pursuing their private agendas against
Thomas. But all - Thomas of Hookton, his enemies and friends
and the fate of La Malice - become swept up in the
extraordinary confrontation that follows, as the large
French army faces the heavily outnumbered English in battle.
