Title: St. George for England

Author: G. A. Henty

What Type of Book: Historic Fiction


Setting: England and France

Main Character Names: Walter Fletcher (or as he can be called Somers), Geoffrey Ward, Giles Fletcher, King Edward the Third, Sir Walter Manny, Ralph, Sir Phillip Holbeaut

Walter Somers is a son of a Knight who was killed because he was a supporter of Edward’s mother whom Edward did not like. Walter’s mother fled to London were she left her child with Giles Fletcher. When Walter was old enough he was apprenticed to Geoffrey Ward as a Blacksmith. After an adventure with some robbers he participates in a Tournament which he won. After the Tournament he learns his true name and joins Sir Walter Manny who is going to France to fight with a Countess. After many adventures he goes home during a truce. He gets attacked by the Black Plague and was almost killed by it but was taken by Sir Phillip Holbeaut to be killed but his wife told Ralph and raised the peasants. They set out after them and came up on them. After a fight Sir Walter Somers was rescued and brought back to his castle.

I learned that the 100 Years War was started in the reign of Edward the Third.


I really liked the battles.

I didn’t like when Walter was taken Prisoner

I wonder why Sir Walter Somers didn’t have men on watch when he was sick.

I would recommend this book because it is exciting history.
