Eclipse of the Crescent Moon

Novel based on the Seige of Eger in 1552, when a small Hungarian garrison resisted a far larger Turkish army for almost six weeks, forcing its humiliating retreat. The garrison commander, Istvan Dobo became a national hero, but he was helped by Gergely Bornemissza, whose ingenious use of explosives caused confusion in the Turkish forces. An exciting tale of chivalry, love, adventure & disaster, leading up to the seige itself. A convincing blend of history & fiction, a Hungarian literary classic beloved of adults & children alike
