The heroes

Author: Joe Abercrombie
Publisher: London : Gollancz, 2011.
Edition/Format:   Print book : Fiction : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Set over three days, in the same world as BEST SERVED COLD, the action is compelling and fast, the battlefield is muddy, bloody and horrible and Joe Abercrombie uses his fantasy setting to explore violence and ambition, strategy and the truism that no plan survives contact with enemy. The characters are the stars, as ever, and the message is dark: when it comes to war, there are no heroes.
