In this book, we discover the man whom later generations venerated as the progenitor of Englishness. Unconsciously, but inevitably, they projected their conception of themselves onto him until the two things became fused. That is what makes Horspool's Alfred so much more pertinent than The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle's. And that is why, if you have time to read just one book about the great man, you should make it this one.
— Daniel Hannan
