This review is from: Battle of Hastings (Double Take) (Paperback)
I bought this for my son and ended up reading it myself because it looked so good.
Absolutely packed with information, not a page wasted, will probably have to read again for it all to sink in. It starts with a lot of background about the families involved, and then goes into setting the scene for the battle. There's plenty of action and gory detail, and real insight into the politics and society of the day.
Really an excellent read, and I'll be following up with some of the author's recommended further reading.
