3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rogerio de O. Souza on January 18, 2012
Format: Paperback
I finished the reading of the 1st edition of this short but great book of John Gilligham (Holmes and Meier Publishers, Inc. 1984). I like this period of History, specially the adventures and deeds of the Plantegenet Family. We read about Henry II, her sons (Richard, the Lionheart and JOhn the Lackland), Eleanor and so on. Gilligham is a good schollar of Medieval England and Europe and bring us to the past in a singular way. His book is easy to read and to understand but anyone who intends to know more will need to look for Gilligham's other books about the same subject. Gilligham organizes the book in seven chapters and a conclusion. This ediction still brings three maps and a genealogical table and a good bibliographical indications for further readings. Highly recommended reading.
