In a time of chaos and Viking onslaught, Alfred the untested Saxon king must fight to save his ravished land. The tale unfurls through the eyes of a young thane, Edmond, who becomes Alfred's friend and mightiest warrior. When Danes over run the land and the Saxons capitulate, this young knight trains and leads a devoted corps of pike-men to recapture the kingdom.

On his adventures Edmond is captured by the Pagan Danes, raises the siege of Paris, meets the Pope and still finds time to fall in love. Henty successfully weaves this plot of intrigue and suspense into the fabric of true history.

    " Nice historical fiction. I could not believe how not great the narrator was. This one might be better in book form. I did really enjoy the story of Edmund and Frieda. :) "

    " Henty is fun if you don't take him too seriously. I found this to be one of his better books. The story of Alfred that he smuggles in is jolly good fun. "
