Cutting through the embellishments and mythology generatedMoreA compelling reexamination of the life of St. George is offered in this historical novel about the legendary patron of England and the workings of the Christian church of the third century. Cutting through the embellishments and mythology generated by centuries of enthusiastic storytellers, the author delves into original historical accounts of the mans life and times in order to tell his true story, from the traumatic murder of his father, through his time as a Roman cavalry officer and dazzling military tactician, to his struggle to survive the religious persecutions at the sunset of the pagan empire.

As they follow St. Georges military campaigns against Romes enemies, readers will journey to the far corners of the Empire, meeting a host of historical figures along the way, including Aurelian, Diocletian, Galerius, Zenobia, and a promising young officer named Constantine.
