4.0 out of 5 stars A Norman Perspective, 9 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: William the Conqueror: The Bastard of Normandy (Hardcover)
Access to primary sources ,in Normandy, for the interested layman, is difficult, even if 'Norman French' is one of your languages. Peter Rex is very adroit at making the sources, and their various interpretations, meaningful to the interested amateur. The making of the young Duke and particularly the events surrounding his flight from Valognes to Falaise are very well told as are the violent episodes following the invasion. This book is a useful partner to Mr Rex 's '1066'. An excellent ,and accessible insight into a seminal period of both English and Norman history.

Dear Tigercat,

I've just finished reading your review of Peter Rex's William the Conqueror. I've taken a look at your other reviews and see you're quite a history fan. If you haven't had your fill of all things Norman and Saxon, I wondered if you would be interested in reviewing my novel, 1066: What Fates Impose? Although it is historical fiction, it stays very close to the facts - at least as I see them. Rather than just write about the battle I have gone into the whole succession crisis and the plotting and court intrigues which make the succession crisis so fascinating. If you are interested in writing a review I would be happy to supply you with a free copy on the understanding that your opinions would be your own.

Thank you for your time.
