This review is from: Millennium: The End of the World and the Forging of Christendom (Paperback)
Very well written, this book describes events in Europe, the Caliphate and surrounding terrotories in the decades either side of the first millennium (1000AD). Although some of the main actors (for example, those involved in the struggle for the English throne in 1066) are well known, the author tells us about their lives in a way I've never seen before in more than 20 years of reading history books. Their detailed biographies are great in their own right, and the way in which their various stories intertwine and interact is absolutely fascinating.
