In the time of the great Anglo-Saxon kings like Alfred and Athelstan, Aethelred and Edmund Ironside, what was warfare really like – how were the armies organised, how and why did they fight, how were the warriors armed and trained, and what was the Anglo-Saxon experience of war? As Paul Hill demonstrates in this compelling new study, documentary records and the growing body of archaeological evidence allows these questions to be answered with more authority than ever before.
“I Highly recommend for any one interested in this period of history. A detailed account of Anglo-Saxon warfare. I will be coming back to this book again and again. This one is a keeper!” Amazon Reviewer
