Book summary

“Woodman has done justice to a remarkable story and man. William Marshal is portrayed as being brave, intelligent - but flawed and human too.” Michael Arnold

William Marshal was born in a time of civil war. In a time of bloodshed and honour.

As a boy he is used as a pawn, during the conflict between Stephen and Matilda. But as a young man he trains as a knight.

Marshal learns his trade in England and Normandy, fighting in tournaments and war-games, gaining friends and enemies alike.

But the boy must become a man - and the squire must become a knight.

Marshal soon finds himself embroiled in the campaigns of Henry II and the rivalry between French Kings.

Where once he fought for fame and riches, the young knight finds himself fighting for his life.

The Knight Banneret is the first book in an epic series chronicling the story of William Marshal, “the Greatest Knight”.

For fans of Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden and Michael Jecks.
