HEREWARD - The English Warrior fighting William the Conqueror,
This review is from: Conquest (The Making of England Quartet) (Paperback)
Hereward - an English Hero!
Although I have read a lot of historical novels I have never come across Hereward before and his story was thoroughly intriguing. The Prologue written by Stewart Binns was definitely the best opening chapter that I have read this year and I was immediately drawn into the story and I could not put this book down.
If you do not know the history of Hereward I will not reveal the story. All I will say is that Hereward was at the Battle of Hastings on Senlac Ridge protecting Harold as one of his Knights against the mighty forces of William the Bastard in 1066, shortly after they had defeated Hardrada at Stamford Bridge. Hereward was a mighty warrior of legionary status, and this is his story.
A fascinating and heroic historical adventure from start to end.
