As usual Peter Rex astounds us with incredibly detailed research, plausible interpretations and a very readible style. He uses an acceptable amount of "recycling" of material from his other books on the period, which helps strengthen the connections. Of course he has his own "pets", a mission to expose the Norman consiracy theory and an undeniable English bias, but why wouldn't he? Great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last English King: the Life of Harold II 18 July 2009
By James Davies - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
An awesome book but not for light reading or for historical novices of this time period. In spite of its bias in Harold's favor, the book is compelling and very thoroughly researched. I loved it.
