DUNDEE, Scotland - Feb. 4, 2020 - PRLog -- An ongoing dispute during World War II in Italy is coupled with a university battle of the wits concerning Richard the Third's guilt or innocence in this intriguing novel that brings together two men and two wars.

Childhood sweethearts George and Mary Stewart get married prior to World War II and both contribute to the war effort. George joins the Army, York and Lancaster Regiment, while Mary works in an ammunition factory in Yorkshire.

Sir Robert Black is a captain in George's York and Lancaster Regiment. When hostilities break out in Salerno, where both George and Robert are stationed, their paths cross and old scores need to be settled, which include historical debates, including the character of Richard III and the War of the Roses.

As for George: "History was the subject that ran in the Stewart family, as their forefathers were renowned historians and George was just carrying on a tradition. The mediaeval period was his forte and he gave talks and entered debates about certain events during mediaeval times on which he was an expert."

Years later, George and Mary's son David participates in a university debate against Sir Robert Black's students, who are highly favored in the contest. Who will win?
