The Normans: Warrior Knights and their Castles.

Gravett, Ch., D. Nicolle.

Paperback. 256p, many col and b/w illus (Osprey 2006, Pb 2007).

Despite the small geographic extent of Normandy, its people played a crucial roel in the history of the medieval world. Throughout the 11th and 12th centuries the Norman knight was possibly the most feared warrior in Western Europe.
Their military prowess was renowned throughout the known world and resulted in the Norman conquest of Sicily in 1060 and England in 1066, as well as playing a major part in the First Crusade.
They built strongholds in important towns such as London and many of their great castles, including the Tower of London, still stand today as a testament to their building skill. This well illustrated book not only looks at the world of the Normans, but also at the life of a typical Norman knight and discusses in detail the inspirational castles they built to protect their hard-won territory.
