Ancient Germanic Warriors: Warrior Styles from Tra&hellip by Michael P. Speidel

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 24 July 2009
This book is simply fantastic. It is one of those few inspiring books Germanophile history-freaks cannot put down once opened.

I marvel the proud warrior traditions of our ancient Germanic forbears, and it hurts to know that these traditions vanished forever with the forced Christian domination of Europe. Michael Speidels 10 year study is probably only a scratch at the surface of all the ancient and now unknown traditions all the European people had before the Christian age.

Highly recommended.

Where does such a review start? No words alone can describe the intense and deep mythology Tolkien has created in The Silmarillion.

The magnificent Silmarillion captures the reader instantly and manages the impossible; to convince the reader that this is indeed lost tales from a mythical Europe, thousands and thousands of years ago back in a forgotten past.
