Book Signing with Dan Jones
We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome historian and bestselling author, Dan Jones, to our bookshop this September!
About this event
Maldon Books is delighted to be hosting a book signing with Dan Jones, celebrating the publication of his fictional debut, Essex Dogs, the explosive first instalment in an epic new trilogy set during the Hundred Years’ War.
About Essex Dogs…
July 1346. The Hundred Years’ War has begun, and King Edward and his lords are on the march through France.
But this war belongs to the men on the ground. Swept up in the bloody chaos, a tight-knit company from Essex must stay alive long enough to see their home again. With sword, axe and longbow, the Essex Dogs will fight, from the landing beaches of Normandy to the bloodsoaked field of Crecy.
There’s Pismire, small enough to infiltrate enemy camps. Scotsman, strong enough to tear down a wall. Millstone, a stonemason who’ll do anything to protect his men.
Father, a priest turned devilish by the horrors of war. Romford, a talented young archer on the run from his past. And Loveday Fitz Talbot, their battle-scarred captain, who just wants to get his boys home safe.
Some men fight for glory. Others fight for coin. The Essex Dogs? They fight for each other.
