Saint George for England 

by G.  A.  Henty 

PREFACE. 

MY DEAR LADS, 

You may be told perhaps that there is no good to be obtained from tales of
fighting and bloodshed, - that there is no moral to be drawn from such
histories.  Believe it not.  War has its lessons as well as Peace.  You will
learn from tales like this that determination and enthusiasm can accomplish
marvels, that true courage is generally accompanied by magnanimity and
gentleness, and that if not in itself the very highest of virtues, it is
the parent of almost all the others, since but few of them can be practised
without it.  The courage of our forefathers has created the greatest empire
in the world around a small and in itself insignificant island; if this
empire is ever lost, it will be by the cowardice of their descendants.
