Book description
An historical epic which relates the exploits of the Hawkwood family of master gunners between 1448 and 1572, the date of the battle of Lepanto. The story revolves around Constantinople and recreates the dying years of the Byzantine emperors and the conquest and magnificence of the Ottomans.

In 1448 an English master-gunner, John Hawkwood, arrives in Constantinople with his family to serve under the Byzantine Emperor. By a twist of fate, he finds himself serving under the city's deadly enemy, the Ottoman Turks, and starts an allegiance that lasts for four generations.
