Transfixed by Story Telling
"1356" is a good, solid, testosterone-laden action adventure set in late middle ages France, amidst the ongoing feuds, battles and wars between the French and English. Bernard Cornwell is known for his meticulously detailed historical fiction, & his incredibly vivid and life like battle realism. This book has all of that and more, but it's missing something that drives the success of his other stories: a robustly solid plot.
