Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Students and teachers looking to supplement a unit about medieval history will gain great insight into this time period by reading about one of the most influential figures of the 10th century. William Marshal's early life struggles did not stop him from reaching great triumphs on and off the battlefield. Readers will learn about a five-year-old boy who was sentenced to death because of his father's will and who overcame this to become one of the most revered and powerful men in England's history. The Marshal, as he was reverently referred to in his later years, was renowned across Europe as a skilled and brave warrior and an extremely honorable knight. Readers will not only gain insight into Marshal's life, but will be immersed in the mystique of medieval knighthood, and the history of the kings and queens whom Marshal served. The book provides side notes to further explain several events and lifestyles of medieval Europe. Black-and-white pictures accompany the text and help the reader to visualize what people and places may have looked like. A map of relevant areas is included, along with a genealogical table of the ruling parties. 2001, Morgan Reynolds, $20.95. Ages 12 to 18. Reviewer: Melissa A. Caudill
School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-Written in a lively fashion, this biography recounts Marshal's life as a minor baron's fourth son, who was sentenced to death at the age of five by King Stephen because his father refused to surrender. However, the boy was not executed, and later became a skillful and courageous knight. He eventually became the Earl of Pembroke; the bodyguard for Eleanor of Aquitaine; and served four kings, Henry II, Richard, John, and Henry III. He ended his career as regent to King Henry III, ruling wisely under very dangerous circumstances resulting from the rule of King John. Quotes from historical sources give life to the narrative. Reproductions from the period provide useful points of reference and clarification. Short descriptions of events, people, or customs lend further insight. This biography not only provides information on Marshal, but also gives a thorough description of the life of a knight, tournaments, chivalry, and medieval life. A genealogical table of the family of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine is included.-Lana Miles, Duchesne Academy, Houston, TX Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
