Having really enjoyed the first of the Conquest Trilogy, I was not disappointed with the second. It's a fast moving tale and, if you're into historical novels in the style of Bernard Cornwell's Alfred the Great Series, Harry Sidebottom's Warrior of Rome,etc., you'll enjoy this!

MERCENARIES - WARRIORS - CONQUEST by Jack Ludlow
Having already sampled the work of this author, who also writes under the pen-name of David Donachie (19th. c. seafaring novels), I expected this fictionalised biographical trilogy to be of a good standard, both historically accurate and a good read. All three volumes were certainly that and more. The author admits that some small liberties have been taken with time lines to maintain the fictional flow but these books are without a doubt an interesting and absorbing read. I do not believe that the de Hautville family who dominated the Norman conquest of Italy and Sicily and subsequently the Holyland have been previously featured in historical fiction since Alfred Duggans novels were published in the 1950s a much overlooked important episode of feudal history.
Buy this series, read them, keep them....they are that rarity in fiction that readers will return to an re-read over again.

Never realized the Normans spread so far and controlled so much of early Europe. The complicated backgrounds of the early Italians set an intriguing backdrop to the wiles of marauding plunderers.

This book continues the story of the Norman mercenaries in Italy, a good read and made me want to buy the next book (I have) I found the ending of the book a little disappointing as it all happened so fast but it did lay the foundations of the next book and left me wanting to read on

Format: Paperback
This follows on from the great action in John Ludlow's first book Mercenaries (Conquest) as the de Hauteville brothers from France continue to try and establish roots in Southern Italy in the Eleventh Century.

The Byzantines rule the South, but loosely, with the locals revolting.

The Lombards, headed by Arduin, would love to rule in Apulia, as they do to the North.

The mercenary brothers, the de Hautevilles, can help Arduin destroy the power of Constantinople.

A great military and political action historical novel with twists and turns right to the end. A romping read of over 400 pages.

This is the second book in the conquest triolgy and is not as good as the first,there is much to much emphasis on the political angle and not enough of the actual warfare and battles that transpired.I shall hope the third book is back on line in theme and action as the first,you obviously must read it to follow the story of the de hautvilles so just go buy it.
