I have never been disappointed in the content of the the Histry in an Hour series, and Medival Anarchy is well worth the read. However, maps of the major battle sites and strongholds of the competing forces would have been a valued addition to the written descriptions. That said, kudos to the author for making clear the complex relationships within and amongst 12th century Norman - English royal families.
