About the author:
Bruce Corbett divides his time between his home on Ile Perrot, just west of Montreal, and his wife's family cottage in scenic Entralac, Quebec. After counselling teenagers and adults for over 40 years, he retired to concentrate on his writing and photography. To date, he has written a collection of Science Fiction short stories, which are now available individually or as a newly-released ebook. Two Science Fiction novels await the final editing. The project closest to his heart, however, is his series of historical novels based on a fictional hero, Ambrose, a Prince of Wessex, set in the time of Alfred the Great. There are now nine novels in the series.

Alfred the Great; Viking Invasion
 

Authored by Bruce Corbett
Edition: 1

The Great Army of the Danes invades Wessex, and, after two sieges, Alfred forces King Guthrum to agree to withdraw. When the leader of the Great Army breaks his word and invades Wessex in early winter, he nearly succeeds in Capturing Alfred and destroying the last independent Saxon kingdom in Britain. King Alfred hides in the forest, until he finds a base deep in the fastness of a marsh. From there he starts to strike back. He deals with the traitors within, and sends the word for his fyrd to gather in when winter ends. Spring finds his men rallying to his banner, and Alfred defeats the Danes. Britain is saved.
