[very light dust-soiling to top edge, otherwise only a trace of shelfwear; jacket is clean and attractive, with minor wear and very slight paper loss at spine ends, a couple of tiny tears along top edge]. (line drawings) "An enthralling tale of mystery, adventure, and intrigue, told against the vivid background of medieval England," specifically the reign of King Henry II. The narrative hinges around one particular historical episode, the attempted invasion of England by the Flemish, who built a fleet of six hundred ships to accomplish this maneuver. "History is tantalizingly silent concerning [the invasion's] outcome. Part of this story is an attempt to solve through fiction the fascinating riddle of what happened to the Flemish fleet."
