Summary

In the 16th century, the Protestant Netherlands fought a war of survival against the Duke of Alva and Phillip II’s Spanish armies who sought to impose Roman Catholicism on the Reformed Church. And it was a noble struggle indeed-“Out of half-submerged morasses . . . a rational and conservative republic is slowly evolved-born amid blood and fire, but dilating daily through storms and darkness to more colossal proportions. From the handbreadth of territory called the province of Holland rises a power which wages eighty years warfare with the most potent empire upon earth” (Motley, p. III).

Henty traces the conflict through the adventures and brave deeds of an English boy in the household of the ablest man of his day-William the Silent. Edward Martin, the son of an English sea captain, enters the service of the Prince as a volunteer, and is employed by him in many dangerous and responsible missions, in the discharge of which he passes through the great sieges of Leiden and Harlaam. He ultimately settles down as Sir Edward Martin and becomes the husband of the lady to whom he owes his life, and whom he in turn had saved from the Council of Blood.
