Helmet and Spear by  Alfred J. Church



Front Matter

[Book Cover]



I Have told again in this volume some familiar stories, using mostly the original authorities, but availing myself, where it was possible, of the help of Plutarch, whose biographies are always rich in picturesque details. These narratives never lose their interest, and they ahve this special significance, that they illustrate what we all at least desire to believe, that the results of abiding good come out of the losses and sorrows of war. I have sought to draw out this thought with some detail in the Epilogue.


Ightham, Sevenoaks. September 8, 1900.
