Death’s Head: A Soldier With Richard the Lionheart

Book Cover Art Work for the book titled: Death's Head: A Soldier With Richard the Lionheart

In the year 1191, a monk named Roger dreams of becoming a knight and helping to free Jerusalem from Saladin and the Saracens – and of maybe, just maybe, finding the father who abandoned him as a baby. When he is unjustly accused of murder, Roger flees for his life and joins the crusade of Richard the Lionheart.
In the Holy Land, Roger is introduced to the grim realities of war. He thrives, though, and rises through the ranks to become commander of a company known as the Death’s heads. He loses one love and finds another, and he suffers a crisis of faith as he watches the huge crusading army being destroyed by disease and famine while the dream of freeing Jerusalem seems as far away as ever.
And his other dream, the one about finding his father, seems as far away as ever, too — or is it?

“Death’s Head” illuminates a little-known but significant moment in history, one whose outcome resonates through the years to the present day. It is a story of war and love and the faith that enables ordinary men to perform extraordinary deeds.
