This is a real treat for fans of historical fiction, GA Henty, and for anyone interested in the great military struggles in France. The story of these brave and dedicated peasants fighting against the whole power of France inspires and enlightens. I heartily recommend.

Excellent story of an area of France populated by conservative Catholics who would not bow the knee to government dictates in the French Revolution. Written in a style similar to Louis L'Amour by a prolific novelist of the late 1800's. Very good read

Even if I think some of his views may be antiquated, they were the norm for his time. I have enjoyed all of the Henty titles I have read, and as a student of history I found this title helpful in understanding a part of the French Revolution I'd never read about before. I heartily recommend this book as it gives a good account that not all of France was party to the revolution. If I have any issue with Henty it is that the books are a bit formulaic - hence the 4 stars instead of 5. That said, they could easily be a supplement to understanding any part of history he wrote about. Accept that he wrote with the predominant worldview of his day, and appreciate the story for itself and you can enjoy it.
