    One thought on “The Grail Quest: The Archers Tale - Vagabond - Heretic”

    1. While I don't consider these to be masterpieces of fiction, they provided a good window into the insanity of the Hundred Years War. The savagery and human tragedy of this conflict have never been more clear to me. The quest for the grail itself seems almost too obvious a device for this journey from battle to battle and region to region, but it does perhaps shine a light on the religious fanaticism that was playing out against a more cynical political and economic conflict, and that was often re [...]

    2. I have enjoyed Cornwell's style of historical fiction despite the anti-Christian bias usually displayed by his heroes. There's usually a "good" Christian thrown in the mix (Galahad in the Winter King Series, Fathers Pyrlig and Beocca in the Saxon Stories) but the main character seems generally to be pagan, and highly contemptuous of the Christian religion.This series differs in that regard; Thomas of Hookton is a devout, if not very pious, Christian through all three books.The underlying plot in [...]

    3. Not sure how to classify this one - it's a mix of history and non-fiction. History told through the eyes of a fictional character. The protagonist has his own backstory and motivations but he ends up on the english side of the battle at Crecy.I enjoyed the story - not a lot, but enough for me to finish the story. There are 3 books in the series, but I think I'm OK having just read this one.

    4. YesA master story teller who stands well above everyone else. Highly recommended and I am looking forward to reading another one of his books.

    5. I had read that the battle of Agincourt was a rallying point in British history; I had to investigate. So I read this author's book about it. He brought the battle to life through the eyes of a rank and file archer-if there were such a thing. I loved the book which turned me on to this book and others in the series. Now I'll need to read ALL his books. They are Good with a capital G! This one is about the bastard son of a sometimes mad priest but also a renegade nobleman from France who is murde [...]

    6. I really enjoyed the whole series. The combat sequences described by Cornwell are really vivid and provide a real sense of what live during the period for a professional soldier/archer would be like. While I found the third book got slightly bogged down with the story, I didn't take away from the overall quality of the series. 5 stars based on how much I enjoyed the series. Will start reading other Cornwell books.

    7. Enjoyable historical fiction about the Hundred Years Wars. It follows the story of Thomas of Hookton, an English archer, going into battle against France in the 14th century. Easy to read and does offer some insight in to the war. Starting the 2nd book called Vagabond.

    8. If you are a fan of historical fiction, this book won't disappoint. I knew, vaguely, of the English archers- but what fun to have it all spelled out for me in detail. Not too much 'battle' detail and plenty of historical detail.

    9. The books are great!I loved the exciting battles and fights . I recommend them to all the fans of historical fiction.

    10. Superit takes a while to read 3 books in 1 but totally worth it.Read this if you like historical fiction.
