A Brotherhood of Warriors: Conquest Trilogy Book 2,
This review is from: Warriors (Conquest Trilogy 2) (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.
