Overview

Originally published in the year 1882, "The Sword Prince" is the stranger-than-fiction biography of Danish-American swordmaster, boxer, duelist and soldier of fortune, Colonel Thomas Hoyer Monstery. Biographer Frederick Whittaker follows his subject from his boyhood years as a cadet in the Danish Navy, through his education in physical culture and swordsmanship at the great European military academies, and thence into his wild career as a sword-for-hire and adventurer in the USA and in Spanish America. Colonel Monstery's life was a switchback of soaring victories and crushing defeats, punctuated by duels of honor against a range of desperate adversaries in many exotic locations. This enhanced re-publication includes fifty sketches and photographs illustrating the life and times of the Sword Prince, supplemented by a new biographical essay and a bibliography. Colonel Monstery is truly one of America's forgotten heroes of swordsmanship.
