A March on London (Works of G. A. Henty)By: G. A. Henty
A March on London, Being A Story of Wat Tyler's Insurrection by G A Henty and published by Preston Publications.
In A March on London, Edgar Ormskirk and his friend Albert De Courcey travel to London in June of 1381, only days before the peasants, with Wat Tyler at their head, converge on that city with their demands for land and freedom. The youths effect several rescues and accompany Richard, the boy-king, to the fateful meeting with Wat the Tyler. Subsequently they help rout the attackers of Sir Ralph De Courcey’s castle, accompany their Flemish patron to Flanders, assist the city of Ghent in its fight for freedom, and participate in the siege of Ypres. once again, Henty brings to us little-known but important events in the history of Western civilization.
