The year is 1215 and following the signing of the Magna Carta King John rallies together a band of ruthless mercenaries to reclaim his powers over England and exert merciless revenge against those that betrayed him. Standing in his way of victory are a group of rebel barons led by Baron Albany and a formidable Templar Knight, Marshall, who take control of one of the most strategic and powerful fortresses in the land, the mighty Rochester Castle. If they are to defend the rights of England against this power crazed King, they must defend the Castle, but there are only 10 of them against a powerful army. With the castle surrounded and food supplies running low it takes all their strength to remain true to the cause.
What ensues is an epic struggle of wit, determination and true daring in one of the longest and bloodiest sieges in English history.
