In the Irish Brigade: A Tale of War in Flanders and Spain

G. A. HENTY (1832 - 1902)

In this adventure story by the novelist and war correspondent, G.A. Henty, Desmond Kennedy, a young Irishman flees political oppression and religious persecution at home to serve in the French armies of Louis XIV. We join Desmond and his loyal companions as, captured in Scotland during the attempted Stuart Restoration of 1715, they engineer a daring prison escape. There are adventures in Spain and the harrowing events of the battle of Oudenard. Returning home, our hero must discover his true identity if he is ever to resume his rightful place in his native land. -- Simmary by Pamela Nagami
