My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A really detailed tale about events surrounding 1066, the Battle of Hastings and the years that followed. Very interesting account of the first Holy Crusade and a delightful band of Brethren who surround Edgar, the rightful heir to the English throne.

Crusade by Stewart Binns

At the moment I’m reading a thrilling tale of adventure surrounding 1066, the Battle of Hastings and all that follows. The story revolves around Edgar, the child who was true heir to the English Throne when William the Conqueror brought his Normans to England. He collects an unusual band of warriors and they travel together to Sicily and later as part of the Holy Crusades. There is a lot of history and historical characters to read through, but the detail is fascinating. If you like historical novels or want to know more about the Normans or the crusades, then this would be a great read.
