Globally bestselling historian Dan Jones is the author of ten non-fiction books, including The Plantagets, The Templars, The Colour of Time and Powers and Thrones. Essex Dogs is his historical fiction debut, the explosive first instalment in an epic new trilogy set during the Hundred Years War.
July 1346. The Hundred Years' War has begun, and King Edward and his lords are on the march through France.
But this war belongs to the men on the ground. Swept up in the bloody chaos, a tight-knit company from Essex must stay alive long enough to see their home again. With sword, axe and longbow, the Essex Dogs will fight, from the landing beaches of Normandy to the bloodsoaked field of Crecy.
There's Pismire, small enough to infiltrate enemy camps. Scotsman, strong enough to tear down a wall. Millstone, a stonemason who'll do anything to protect his men.
Father, a priest turned devilish by the horrors of war. Romford, a talented young archer on the run from his past. And Loveday FitzTalbot, their battle-scarred captain, who just wants to get his boys home safe.
Some men fight for glory. Others fight for coin. The Essex Dogs? They fight for each other.
This event will take place at The Octagon Theatre, Grassington on Tuesday 6th September, 8pm. Bar will be available on the night. Tickets £5 or tickets and book £20  and can be purchased from either The Stripey Badger Bookshop or online.
