Pity For The Guy

(2010)
A Biograpy of Guy Fawkes
A non fiction book by

 
 
John Paul Davis, the author of Robin Hood: The Unknown Templar returns with the first biography of the man behind the infamous Gunpowder Plot. For hundreds of years he has been portrayed as an extreme figure,a rabid Catholic who not only tried to blow up Parliament but threatened the English way of life early in the reign of James I. In this absorbing study Fawkes is revealed as far more than a shadowy conspirator with an axe to grind against the Protestant cause. Full of intrigues and insights into the policital age, it also ultimately reveals Fawkes the husband, soldier, lover, adventurer - and perhaps the most misunderstood of English villains.
