St. George for England is now complete and available as a free audio download from Librivox. (Hooray for Librivox volunteers!).
This is one you won’t want to miss if you’re currently studying the reign of Edward III; the Black Prince; the battles of Cressy and Poitiers; the destruction of the Spanish fleet; the Black Death; and the Jacquerie rising.
As an interesting aside, we met in this book characters first introduced to us in “A Chaplet of Pearls”, by Charlotte Yonge, about the slaughter of St Bartholomew’s Eve (France, 1572).
If you are desiring to be immersed in the era, you can’t go past Ronald Welch’s “Bowman of Crecy”. He doesn’t cover the battle of Poitiers, but you’ll never forget his account of Crecy!
Happy listening, folks!
