'A thrilling, fast-moving, engaging tale, with unexpected twists, beautiful prose, excellent characterisation and dialogue, human sentiment and motivation, and graphic descriptions of war. The reader is utterly convinced by the medieval world in this stunning work. I am reminded of great books such as those of Zoe Oldenbourg. And, move over Bernard Cornwell!' Historical Novel Society. 'The author writes his scenes so powerfully ... It's that level of writing skill that helps this book stand apart from the crowd' Parmenion Books. 'A vivid snapshot of 14th-century Normandy life in all its bloody, gritty glory by a great story-teller. Historical fiction heaven!' The Bookbag. 'Gilman is a master author. His books are meticulously researched and historically accurate whilst at the same time being thrilling and suspenseful ... in the same class as Bernard Cornwell' Army Rumour Service. 'This novel is, to put it simply, marvellous. The early Hundred Years War brought alive in all its violence, chaos and valiance ... It's not often military historical fiction moves me to tears but this book managed it' For Winter Nights. 'Brilliant, really brings across the brutality of the period, an author at the top of his game' Mark Kearney, Goodreads. 'I loved the story and felt I was taken back to medieval times with the descriptions ... A great story' Comet BabesBooks. 'I would recommend this book if you want to get lost in history and the drama of the battle!' The Lilac Linnet. 'An excellently written book with descriptions so clear that throughout the entire story I genuinely felt I was standing next to Thomas Blackstone. It gives an excellent insight to a very turbulent time in France's history and how it affected the people who lived there' Book Lover Worm Blog. '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.

The hero is a hero; resourceful, strong, clever, saves the woman... the usual somewhat over-done approach used in historical fiction. He is everything but handsome (big battle scar on face!). That being said, not everything goes his way and further adventures in Italy await in the next book
For me, it was a good read to the dryer straight history I usually read.
