The war of attrition between the kingdom of Deraine and Roche has been bloody with both sides willing to send pawns to death to gain a slight edge. Entire units are treated as fodder to move a position forward a few miles. Neither side will grudgingly give an inch though the decision makers remain comfortable far from the deadly front lines. --- Dragon Master Hal Kailas knows first hand how bad the war has depleted his forces as his side slowly loses the entrenched ground war and Roche begins to show superiority in the skies with their black dragon riders. Kailas has to find an answer even as he squabbles with his superior officer Asir the King who refuses to listen to supply inadequacies including a dragon shortage and a lack of trained soldiers. He must emulate the enemy and take the war to their civilian populace. Meanwhile his adversaries make a concerted effort to catch the Deraine war hero with plans to lock him away in magical binds inside a death camp as a demoralizer aimed at his people. --- As with the first Dragonmaster tale (see STORM OF WINGS), there are obvious comparisons to the trench warfare and aerial fights of WWI and the civilian attacks of WWII, but set in a fantasy realm. The story line showcases the fortunes and foibles of armed combat highlighted by the concept that peaceful solutions are for the naive while the realist errs on the side of someone else¿s death. However, as the tale spins its moral issues, the key characters even Hal never seem to have learned anything from their previous adventures. Still KNIGHTHOOD OF THE DRAGON is a superb military fantasy that will have the audience looking forward to the reprint of the LAST BATTLE. --- Harriet Klausner

This whole series is basically retelling WWI and WWII stories in a different milieu. It's been a while since I read them, but this one is the Colditz story I'm pretty sure.The fact that the author is a former soldier in special forces, according to his biography anyway, gives a lot of verisimilitude and some lovely stories of the change from "noble war" to professional soldiering.

With the war dragging on DragonMaster Hal Kalais is coming to wonder if the endless bloody stalemate will ever end. New ideas and new weapons seem to do nothing but spend more lives - both men and dragons dying in such quantities that neither side will win, no matter the outcome. Captured and imprisoned, Hal plots escape and continues to dream prophetic dreams....Enjoyable, if not quite as upbeat (if a war can be said to be upbeat) as the first installment. Worthwhile if military fantasy featuring dragons and somewhat rough and ready heroes who don't always see their own worth.
