Read full description of the books:
It is 1636 - the height of the Thirty Years War, one of the bloodiest and most destructive conflicts Europe has ever seen. As the campaigning season begins, the Spanish armies swell out of the Artois region of the Netherlands – flooding into King Louis XIII's France.
The sleepy border village of Dax-en-roi stands in their way. Facing the overwhelming might of the Spanish forces, the Chevalier de Roland rallies a valiant defence, but in vain – his household guard no match for the invaders. There is only one survivor as the Roland estate is razed to the ground, one soul who escapes the Spanish brutality: the lone heir to the Roland name, the son, a young boy by the name of André de Roland, the new Sieur of Dax . . .
Upon this young nobleman's shoulders all hope lies. He alone must bear the honour of the Roland name and, with it, the fate of his people.

Read information about the authorA. L. Berridge worked as a teacher, a script editor, and a television producer before finally settling down as a full-time novelist. She inherited her love of history from her father, writer and Victorian specialist David Newsome, but her own passion is for military adventure, and the character and relationships of men at war. She is published by Penguin.
Her first novel, the epic HONOUR AND THE SWORD, was published in April 2010 and became an instant Sunday Times Bestseller. Set during the Thirty Years War, it follows the adventures of André, the young Chevalier de Roland, as he fights to survive the 1636 Spanish invasion of Picardy.
Its sequel, IN THE NAME OF THE KING, is the second in the ‘Chevalier’ series and came out in August 2011. This time the idealistic de Roland is caught in the crossfire of political intrigue, and has to deal with the 1642 conspiracy of Cinq-Mars before a final bloody showdown at the Battle of Rocroi.
Her latest novel, ‘INTO THE VALLEY OF DEATH’, is set in the Crimean War, and is the first in a new series featuring Victorian military hero Harry Ryder. The book follows the adventures of four friends through the horrors of Alma and Inkerman as well as exploring the real-life mystery behind the Charge of the Light Brigade. It was published in May 2012, and its sequel is expected in 2013.
