In this novel about the Thirty Years' War, 16-year-old Malcolm Graheme is a Scot who volunteered to fight with the military forces conducted by the celebrated Gustavus Adolphus. When the Emperor of Austria sought to eliminate Protestantism from Germany, the Swedish King fought the terrorism endured throughout villages whose population was mercilessly decreased by the Hun invasion. The Scots displayed the fortitude of Gustavus's army by fighting their way across a Germany that was tormented by religious persecution. Malcolm underwent enterprises whose possible outcome was dangerous, but his quick thinking and insolent resolve won him the struggle against a pitiless opponent.Please Note: This book has been reformatted to be easy to read in true text, not scanned images that can sometimes be difficult to decipher.
