The introduction of Brown's book should be made compulsory reading. --London Review of Books
From the Back Cover
The English who faced the forces of William duke of Normandy on 14 October 1066 were by no means a pure-bred and unified island race, nor was the flower of England's manhood laid low by an army of self-seeking Norman opportunists. R. Allen brown traces the forces and influences that shaped both England and Normandy in the decades before 1066, and, in what has been a controversial subject, takes the firm view that William had a legitimate claim to the English succession.
