Book Review: Conquest by Stewart Binns

Conquest (Making of England, #1)Conquest by Stewart Binns
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting account of the life and times of Hereward the Wake.Very nicely written with the lead character being larger than life and the ultimate warrior. The tale is a little of a history lesson at times, but is worth reading as this is an interesting period of history. It is told well before The Conquest, following Hereward's exile as a teenager and journey across Europe and beyond, learning the art of warfare. Duke William is interestingly portrayed and given his many deeds, his characteristics seem spot on. Overall, a good read and fills an interesting knowledge gap. Some interesting links to the later legend of Robin Hood
