WIN 5 free copies of Wolves of Winter by Dan Jones

Head of Zeus are delighted to be offering 5 paperbacks of Wolves of Winter by Dan Jones to 3 reading groups.

The epic, captivating and brutal follow-up to Essex Dogs by Sunday Times bestselling historian, Dan Jones, following the fortunes of ten ordinary soldiers in the early years of the Hundred Years’ War.


1347. After a bloody battle at Crécy, the Essex Dogs pick through the wreckage of the fighting – and their own lives.

Now the Dogs are sent to attack the soaring walls of Calais where a new siege is beginning. To get home, they must survive in a lawless camp that is deadlier than any battlefield.

Obsessed with finding the Captain, Loveday is losing control of his men. Romford is haunted by a horrific figure from his past. And Scotsman is spiralling into a pit of drink, violence and self-pity.

The Dogs are being torn apart – but this war is far from over. It won’t be long before they lose more of their own…
