Set out as uite a few books set in this period are by someone telling the story of someone else or someone telling their story to someone elseget over the initial groans and you ve got a really good involving interesting and evocative story Here it s even a bit convoluted as the story teller is telling a story as it was told to him by Harold of Hereward in letters to his church friend high up in the Vatican However It continues and fits seamlessly after the previous book Crusade and I think may well turn out to be the best of the series though there s only one to go Hereward s descendants are still involved but of course as the story moves on there are fewer who actually knew him and his legend grows Though for all his multifarious exploits in foreign climes as told in these books and James Wilde s books if you think about it his exploits never seem to have reached back to England There there is still mystery and intrigue surrounding him explained here and by James Wilde as the result of a pact made with King William to cease the resistance leave England and never come backI found no real fault in the uality of the writing but I can imagine uite a few aficionados will There s a real fluid flow to the story a sense of purpose and no one can argue he doesn t know his way around a story or how to tell it If you take the time to think about the story the people the times you could end up as me feeling uite affected by the concepts of loyalty to people and ideals that are expressed here I was very sad to finish the book As in there being a slight watering of the eyes that people gave their own futures for the futures of others and theres no surprise he is a former soldier and teacher has also written books on WWI and WWII People who put their own hopes and dreams to the side for the sake of other people Most poignant of all the link to Harold Hereward and what might have been on Senlac Hill if just five minutes had gone differently in 1066Say what you like about the writing the books they do inspire to maybe go find out about the periods If only to see if the people did really do all the things he has them doing Anyway uite apart from feeling proud that there were such men who called themselves Englishmen and were willing to lay down their lives or change their lives for the ideal of an England their children could be proud ofAll my reviews in one place Why yes Speesh Reads
