Having already sampled the work of this author, who also writes under the pen-name of David Donachie (19th. c. seafaring novels), I expected this fictionalised biographical trilogy to be of a good standard, both historically accurate and a good read. All three volumes were certainly that and more. The author admits that some small liberties have been taken with time lines to maintain the fictional flow but these books are without a doubt an interesting and absorbing read. I do not believe that the de Hautville family who dominated the Norman conquest of Italy and Sicily and subsequently the Holyland have been previously featured in historical fiction since Alfred Duggans novels were published in the 1950s a much overlooked important episode of feudal history.
Buy this series, read them, keep them....they are that rarity in fiction that readers will return to an re-read over again.
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.
I have greatly enjoyed his other books (in whichever of his guises) and these have been more leisurely constructed but these three books should, perhaps, have been four or even five.
All in all they have ended up as one long holiday read rather than true historical novels
