The Grand Cham - Harold Lamb

A Breton sailor is captured and tortured by a Turkish sultan, an swears vengeance.

Said sultan leaves him alive, despite advice from some of his more bloodthirsty underlings to leave him mortally challenged.

Of course, the vengeance thing is better if you are alive, and that means getting out of there.

Plenty of sword swinging type action, and ultimately, a battle

If this sort of historical fiction appeals, then Lamb you should definitely check out. Some of his work is online.

3.5 out of 5
