The Battle of Hastings is arguably the best-known and perhaps the most significant battle in English history. Its effects were deeply felt at the time, causing a lasting shift in cultural identity and national pride.
In this detailed and engaging account, Jim Bradbury places the 1066 battle in its broader context and examines its far-reaching effects. He explores the full military background to the battle and investigates both our knowledge of what actually happened and the role that it plays in national myth. At its core, The Battle of Hastings offers a move-by-move reconstruction of the conflict, including the advanced planning, the site itself, the composition of the two armies and the use of archers, feigned flights and the death of Harold Godwineson.
This is a book that anyone interested in England’s most famous battle will find indispensable.
