The Wersgorix thought King Edward III’s England ripe for conquest. Instead, Sir Roger Baron de Tourneville happily beats them back and dares to plot. What fate awaits brave Englishmen among the stars?
Middle Age Englishmen jollily fighting aliens and then fretting is humorous. Sir Roger cunningly uses war tactics and cuthroat political moves, but victory is uncertain. Sir Roger is an interesting blend of cunning, unpolished, brave, and arrogant. Brother Parvus muses on some serious issues while long sufferingly grappling with his duties. The High Crusade offers science fiction, alternate history, adventure, and dashes of humor.
