The King's Service. A Story of the Thirty Years' War

Author: Deborah Alcock
Publisher: Religious Tract Society
Publish Date: 1886

The long series of wars between the Catholics and Protestants of Germany, which devastated and decimated that land, has proved a fertile field for the writers of historic tales. We have read none which are better written or in which greater pains have been taken to secure accuracy as to important facts, than the ones before us. The events leading up to the battle of Lutzen and the death of Gustavus Adolphus are full of interest to all Protestants. Young and old will follow the fortunes of the Grahams, the chief actors in the story to the end.
