I would like to introduce you to G.A. Henty.
To quote Preston Speed Publications about Mr Henty: "Henty's stories revolve around a fictional boy hero during fascinating periods of history.

His histories, particularly battle accounts, have been recognized by historian scholars for their accuracy. In fact, the only criticism Henty faced by the liberals of his day was that his heroes were "too Christian." There is nothing dry in Mr. Henty's stories and thus he removes the drudgery and laborious task often associated with the study of history."
We first encountered Mr Henty's brilliant story telling when we read
