August 1643, and the Siege of Gloucester continues. How can Gloucester with its weak, underdefended walls continue to stand against the might of the Royalists. Sparrow and Telling may be on different sides, but their dreams and desires are the same. To find the courage to fight proudly and lead their men. For the war to be won and for the love of the incomparable Bella. But only one side can win, and only one man can have Bella ...The Battle of Newbury is the bloodiest of the campaign to date - and leaves both sides reeling, unable to determine who has won and who has lost - and in the end if anything has been achieved at all.
