This book is fantastic for those that want to get understand medieval history and not fall sleep trying. It is obvious that a lot of things have not made into the book but it would be impossible to put all 1000 years of medieval history down in such a small book without making choices. Still, the author's narrative is entertaining and hits on the most relevant facts. I would certainly recommend this book.

Exactly like the title says, this is a book for beginners who don't yet know anything about medieval history. The information is laid out in a clear and logical way, almost like a timeline through history of what events happened where, who was involved and a little bit about what impact wars, crusades etc had on countries in medieval Europe. The book is a great place to start if you want the facts.
