The Real Falstaff

By Stephen Cooper

This book tells the story of Sir John Fastolf (1380-1459), a prototype for Shakespeare's Falstaff. Fastolf fought for over 25 years in France during the Hundred Years War; but is perhaps better known as the lord of Castle Combe in Wiltshire and the builder of Caister Castle in Norfolk. The book is published by 'Pen & Sword' and is available on Amazon.
