„The White Company” is the story of Alleyne Edricson’s quest to win the hand of his lady love, the Lady Maud Loring. The place is England and the Continent, the year is 1366 during the reign of the King of the English, Edward III, and his realm is twenty-nine years into The Hundred Years’ War with France. Setting off on his adventures, he finds himself part of the White Company – a group of mercenary archers en route to France. A roistering tale of knight-errantry follows, with Alleyne’s quest to justify himself and his love the focus of the piece. „The White Company” is a very well researched novel, in which many historical characters appear to lend credence to the narrative and the book ends on a predictably happy ending.
