There are few great leaders whose lives and actions have so completely fallen into oblivion as those of the Earl of Peterborough. His career as a general was a brief one, extending only over little more than a year, and yet in that time he showed a genius for warfare which has never been surpassed, and performed feats of daring worthy of taking their place among those of the leaders of chivalry. In Bravest of the Brave, G.A. Henty spins another fine yarn as he shadows Petersborough with a carackerjack young man. Youths and adults alike will enjoy Henty's historical novel, Bravest of the Brave.
