This is a radical retelling of the most important event in English history - the Norman invasion of 1066. Rather than being the smooth transition peddled by pro-Norman historians, the Norman Conquest was a brutal and violent takeover by an army of occupation. The author tells the whole story of the Conquest of England by the Normans, from its genesis in the deathbed decision of King Edward the Confessor to recommend Harold Godwinson as his successor, to the crushing of the last flickers of English resistance in June 1076.
