About this Event
Join us for a fantastic evening with Sunday Times bestselling author/historian Dan Jones, returning with ‘Wolves of Winter’, the epic follow-up to ‘Essex Dogs’, following the fortunes of ten ordinary soldiers in the early years of the Hundred years’ War. About money, merchants, and the medieval ‘deep state’, this is a must-read for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden.
About the Book
For the dogs, the war has only just begun.
Caught up in the siege of Calais, in the midst of a brutal eleven-month blockade of a small port on the French coast, they are no longer blindly walking into the unknown. But the men still have more questions than answers about what faces them – and why.
What are they really fighting for? And why does the king care so much about taking such a small French town? The Dogs aren’t paid to ask questions but in their work, they have the means to make people talk.
Soon, their journey will reveal who really wants this war to last for a hundred years. And as the battles rages, they hear the first, faint, chesty rattle of a natural disaster that is sweeping towards and the Dogs and their world…
