    • The story starts at about the time of the Battle of Sluys (1340) when Edward of Woodstock, later known as the Black Prince, was ten years old. We meet a naïve young boy who, upon being told that wars cost money, thinks: "I didn't believe it. Wars were won with courage and honor. Besides, what about the 230 ships? Father could sell those." Young Edward soon displays perseverance and tenacity as he learns the art of falconry. He comes under the tutelage of Lord Fitzalan who grooms him for knighth [...]

    • (disclaimer: I'm good friends with the author.) Before the stunning British victory at Agincourt came the battles of Crécy and Poitiers, equally unlikely but devastating victories for the British in the Hundred Years War. The architect of these victories was Edward, known as the Black Prince.Ever wonder how a sensitive, inquisitive young boy turns into one of the greatest warriors and military leaders of the medieval era? As a Black Prince tells the story of Edward from when he was a young boy, [...]

Yet the book is gripping in its narrative and character study weaving the details of every day medieval life into a gedanken-bilder that is so vivid the [...]

      The story of the life of the Black Prince, otherwise known as the Black Knight, the heir to the throne of EnglandThis is a riveting good tale of the real emotions of a young Prince and his two younger sisters, left in the infamous Tower of London, for safety sake. It is the tale of how his father, the King, goes about teaching him the things he must know to be a good knight, a even better warrior, and one day a king. It is also the story of the one true love of his life and how he must live with [...]

    • This is one of the oddest historical fiction books I've ever read. Of all that could be conjured and written about Edward, the Prince of Wales, why did this author choose to focus on this choice of imagined aspects of Edward's character? I found this book rather depressing from the beginnings founded in the imaginary fears of a 10 year-old boy to the confusion of a teenager on the Crecy battlefield at a complete loss as to why he was there. And then suddenly, the Prince is transformed from a sel [...]

    • BoredNothing attractive about the writing. Not interesting. Had no desire to finish the book. Not worth the time or effort.

    • The Black PrinceLoved the beginning, Loved the MiddleLoved the battles and historyLoved the chivalry, as it wasLoved the ending.

    • No continuityA confusing book. If there was a plot I missed it. It is more like a mosaic than a story. No tension, no character development, just piecemeal scenes.
