The story of the 1689 siege of Londonderry proclaims the power of God in the incredible resistance of the City of Londonderry against the attempted Jacobite conquest of Ireland by the deposed King James II of England. While the city leaders vacillated, thirteen bold and brave young apprentices took the initiative to close the city gates. “No surrender!” became the rallying cry. Faith in Christ gave the people of Derry the courage to resist in the face of extended siege, blockade, starvation, and disease. Liberty lovers—young and old—should read this book.
Read the Excerpt!
It was now clear that the city was not to be taken by assault. Other means must be tried.
It was not only the enemy outside the walls that the brave defenders had to contend with; remorseless foes, in the shape of hunger and fever, came to the aid of the Irish, and it was now evident that the besieged would have to be starved out of their position. The most extraordinary means were adopted to prevent any food being taken into the town.
