Life of St. Monica - F.A. Forbes - A Short Summary and Review

The Norman Conquest: The Battle of Hastings and the Fall of Anglo-Saxon England - Marc Morris - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of The Norman Conquest:

The facts and fatalities that wove together the Norman conquest of England.

My favorite William I quote:

"I have taken England with both my hands!"
(after he fell on his face, getting off his ship)

Questions to ponder while reading The Norman Conquest:

Did you realize how many people were trying to rule England?

Could the Bayeux Tapestry be accurate?

My review of the book:

A pivot point in England's history.

Incredibly readable.

In-depth background.
