6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Lesley West on July 13, 2000
Format: Paperback
This is a well written book which looks at an interesting period in English history which is for the most part skimmed over by novellists (where most of us get our history) in favour of later more "interesting" periods. It is a great introduction to the topic, and is a worthy addition to the library of anyone who is interested in the period.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Douglas E. Libert on June 15, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book was written as a reaction to the all of the revisionist Neo-Anglo-saxon writings of the 60's,which saw the Norman conquest of England as an invasion that was more negative than positive.The book is almost half comprised of footnotes which shows a conscientousness in regard to the written sources on the author's part.Brown portends that Norman achievements in all aspects in regard to England far outweigh any negative aspects.There is a detailed chapter on the numerous claims to Edward the Confessor's throne and the legitimacy of each one-then Brown let's the reader decide.Once again the footnotes add to the author's surgical detail.The book is a "lest we forget" book addressed to the Neo-Anglosaxonophiles of the 60's.
