BATTLE STORY HASTINGS 1066

JONATHAN TRIGG    Book Number: 88962    Product format: Paperback

Photographs of the battlefield today, artist's interpretations and of course reproductions from the Bayeux Tapestry place you in the centre of the action. In 1066, the most significant battle on English soil took place some six miles northwest of Hastings. A King would die on the battlefield and a new dynasty would be established. The fighting exemplified the superiority of an all-arms combined attack employing foot soldiers, cavalry and archers against massed infantry. The book gives easy-to-read maps plotting each development in the struggle, descriptions of the weaponry, armour and tactics of the combatants, explaining why the famous house carles of England were obliterated for all time. Packed with fact boxes such as '150 Years Later' and 'Why castles were Built' at Warwick, Nottingham and York to secure the north and the Midlands before William turned south. Lincoln represented a strategic crossroads with a Roman road connecting York and London. 67 illustrations, 160pp in paperback.
