(From the publisher):
The hero, Philip Fletcher, is an English lad, but has a French connection on his mother’s side. This kinship induces him to cross the Channel in order to take a share in that splendid struggle for freedom known as the Huguenot wars.
The heroic struggle of the Huguenots is well narrated by Henty’s masterful writing. Learn of Coligny’s unflinching bravery, Queen Elizabeth’s vacillating foreign policy, Catherine de Medici’s vindictive scheming and the Queen of Navarre’s inner strength.
