Gentlemen of Pitchfork was published in 2009 by Polish publishing house, Rebis.  It has been translated into English and published by the author via Amazon this summer.  The novel is set during the Hundred Years War in France and the anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt is just 2 days away.  The author lends real knowledge to what it was like to fight as a knight at this time as he is a historical re-enactor and a skilled swordsman, having won the Polish Knights League in 2006.

Book Blurb:

The year is 1415. France is weakened by the recently ended Civil War between the factions of Burgundians and Armagnacs. The young and belligerent King Henry V Lancaster decides to pay the French a neighbourly visit.

With him - the flower of the English knighthood...

Join Sir Robert Neville, a young English knight, on a quest to discover the true nature of chivalry, love and philosophy in the unwelcoming lands of Northern France as he follows Henry V on a campaign to reclaim his King’s rightful legacy of the French crown.

There will be blood.
There will be romance.
There will be abductions and pursuits.
There will be great history that echoed for centuries long after the last screams of the dying at Agincourt could be heard.
