    I love Georgette Heyer, but not this book!

    Georgette Heyer is known for her extensive research into the historical periods about which she is writing. This time however, I think she went overboard. The book tends to sound, at times, like a history major's dissertation. She appears to be trying to squeeze in every bit of information she has learned about warfare in the 11th Century. There is a lot of mention of terms, without definition. Usually you can figure it out within the context to a certain extent, but I think this book definitely needs an index!

    I also have to say that I did not find the characters very believable. Some were stereotypes and others were just plain over the top. Somebody who is really interested in military history might enjoy the book a lot more than I did. My favorite G. Heyer books remain the mysteries set in early 20th century England.

    I liked this book

    I was caught off guard by this book at first, thinking it woukd be one of her typical novels. I was first interested then intriged by the narative of a man who totally changed history.

    OK

    I found this book to be a little tedious. Actually, I normally read fairly quickly, but this one took me quite a while to finish. The characters are interesting, but the language, which I assume was what the author thought to be the way they spoke in that era I thought annoying.
