Post Henty, G.A.: Knight of the White Cross v1 26 jan 2009

George Alfred Henty was born in Trumpington, England, on December 8,1832. He studied at Cambridge, but left without his degree so he could volunteer for service in the Crimean War. After several failed attempts at careers, he decided in 1865 to become a writer, beginning as a correspondent for The Standard. He also wrote adult novels of mysteries and adventure, but turned to children's stories after contributing with success to Union Jack magazine.

In his World article, George Grant calls Mr. Henty a Victorian literary phenomenon whose 144 books and myriad short stories have long enthralled adults and children alike. His fiercely accurate narratives range across the whole spectrum of human achievement, highlighting the greatest characters and the most decisive moments in history.

George A. Henty died on November 16, 1902

Young Gervaise Tresham leaves England and the turmoil of the Wars of the Roses to become a Knight of St. John.

Starting as a page of the Grand Master, Gervaise quickly attains knighthood and defends Europe and Christendom against the anarchy of piracy in the Mediterranean and the expansion of the Turkish empire. Sir Tresham is there to defend the fortress at Rhodes during the first siege of that city by Soleiman.
