AGAINST THE DEVIL'S MEN
In our history, in 1242, abruptly on the death of their overlord, �gedei Khan, the Mongol forces ravaging Europe withdrew.
?Against the Devil?s Men? envisages �gedei living just ten years longer and the Mongol advance continuing unabated.
By 1267, the Papacy has retreated to eastern Spain and a front line runs from Celestine?s Wall in France up to the River Rhine in the German states. Against this background, an exceptional friar, Brother Cataldo, the half-Mongol Sister Aurea and a hardy band of Cuman warriors, are sent to spread disease among the Mongols in the desperate hope of stemming their invasion.
