Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Hosler’s book is a welcome addition to the history of twelfth-century Europe, correctly asserting the central importance of war, the preparation for war, and war’s aftermath to all aspects of life……this work will be valuable for specialists in medieval military history and the history of twelfth-century Europe, for graduate students, and for advanced undergraduates.”
David S. Bachrach in Journal of Military History, Oct 2007, Vol. 71/4

"Gelingt, genuin militärgeschichtliche Befunde in den allgemeinen Forschungsstand zu Heinirch II. zu integrieren...Die gebotene Befunde...und die intensive Aufarbetung der Quellenlage machen die Lektúre des flüssig geschiebenen Werkes...zu einen Gewinn."
Holger Berwinkel, Deutsches Archiv für Erfoschung des Mittelalters 65,1 (2009) 421-422
