Men-At-Arms #154: Arthur and the Anglo Saxon Wars Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Arthurian Age; the Celtic Twilight; the Dark Ages; the Birth of England; these are the powerfully romantic names often given to one of the most confused yet vital periods in British history. It is an era upon which rival Celtic and English nationalisms frequently fought. It was also a period of settlement, and of the sword. This absorbing volume by David Nicolle transports us to an England shrouded in mystery and beset by savage conflict, a land which played host to one of the most enduring figures of our history - Arthur.

Synopsis:

Part of the "Men-At-Arms" series, this book looks at Anglo-Celtic warfare between 410-1066, illustrating equipment, weapons and military encounters.
