Won by the Sword
A Story of the Thirty Years War
By: G. A. Henty (1908)

The scene of this story is laid in France, during the time of Richelieu, of Mazarin and Anne of Austria. The hero, Hector Campbell, is the orphaned son of a Scotch officer in the French Army. How he attracted the notice of Marshal Turenne and of the Prince of Conde; how he rose to the rank of Colonel; how he finally had to leave France, pursued by the deadly hatred of the Due de Beaufort - all these and much more the story tells with the most absorbing interest.
