This month marks the 449th anniversary of the St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre in Paris, France. On the sorrowful night of August 24, 1572, more than 2000 French Huguenots – men, women, and children – were slaughtered for their faith.

In this narrative woven around the events of this time, Mr. Henty vividly depicts Admiral Coligny’s unflinching bravery, Queen Elizabeth’s indecisive foreign policy, Catherine de Medici’s vindictive scheming, and the Queen of Navarre’s inner strength. You will join in the adventures of Phillip Fletcher, who is the son of an Englishman and a Frenchwoman, as he journeys to France to take part in the Huguenots’ struggle for freedom. He and his band of soldiers see much combat, and Phillip’s skill as a swordsman and marksman is required many times before he returns as a hero to England!
