Captain Of The Wight
by Dorothy Davies
In 1488 Sir Edward Woodville and some 440 men from the Isle of Wight set sail for Brittany and battle. Only 1 boy returned to tell the tale of disaster, all were slaughtered by the French.
This little book tells a piece of missing Island history first in fiction, as the author seeks to discover the true reasons for Sir Edward's mad gesture, then from the pages of the Isle of Wight Journal,long since defunct, which spells out the background to the campaign and its aftermath and finally the original medieval report of the campaign. For all history lovers!
