John Lincolnabout this book: I've always been fascinated with swordifghting and especially tales of Camelot or Charlemagne.
After three years of research and six months of writing I published my debut novel "Blood and Honour - The Battle for Saxony", a historical novel set in the dark ages, as an Kindle ebook on Amazon.com in December 2012.
Europe, in the year of the Lord 772. Like a bloody storm, Charlemagne's armies ravage early medieval Europe, leaving devastation and misery in their wake. They have subdued the kingdom of the Langobards, defeated the duchy of Bavaria; they threaten the Moors in the west and, in the south, the pope in Rome.
Yet Charlemagne has even more ambitious plans: he covets the Saxon territories in the north. The Saxons put up an unexpectedly fierce resistance. When Charlemagne's troops destroy the Irminsul shrine, the Saxon holy of holies, there ensues a struggle to the death. Led by the legendary Duke Widukind, for decades the Saxons fight savagely for their beliefs and their independence. And they will have their revenge...
