This work was originally published in 1832. There were at least three editions of it, so it was apparently a very popular work. The story it tells begins with the earliest inhabitants of England, the Celts, and goes through the Angle/Saxon invasions, the Viking invasions, and finally the Norman invasion. It provides a complete picture of the Norman invasion and the subsequent conflicts between the Anglo-Saxon people and their Norman conquerors. It is not a pure military history, but a general history with a heavy dose of military. It continues the story of the Normans in England through the murder of Thomas Beckett, Archbishop of Canterbury.
This work is sold only as a set for $50 because it was split into two parts on the basis of page count, not on the basis of a logical breaking point in the subject matter. Postage within the US is the same and please order from the website. However, for international orders, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you a quote on postage so we can work out payment outside of the website. Sorry. Postage is a royal pain and I cannot program the website to deal with a two book shipment overseas.
