Book description
Battle Verse intersperses fantasy battlescapes with historically accurate poetic accounts of Maldon, Hastings, Bannockburn, and Crecy. Also included are epics that detail Alexander the Great's conquest of India and William Wallace's famous victory at Stirling Bridge--the battle Hollywoodized by Mel Gibson's Braveheart. Robertson employs both free verse and traditional rhymed styles in this chronologically organized collection that is peopled with Macedonians, Celts, Romans, Vikings, Normans, Saxons, Scots, supernatural knights, and sci-fi soldiers. David Cox brings the text to life with realistic pen and ink illustrations that make Battle Verse the perfect read for anyone interested in action-packed adventure of the high fantasy or military history genres.
