My dear mother, who knew I loved Barringer's Neustrian series (Gerfalcon etc.) proudly presented me wth this, and I did not have the heart to tell her it was the one Barringer novel I did not like. Barringer was originally a Quaker (though he fought in WWI) and this reads like an indictment of Henry V for war crimes, especially the treatment of the "useless mouths" trapped between the armies at the seige of Rouen. The one gentle moment is when the protagonist, now a hardened English soldier, spares a peasant girl who will grow up to be Joan of Arc. ( )
