This work was originally published in 1832.  There were at least three editions of it, so it was apparently a very popular work.  The story it tells begins with the earliest inhabitants of England, the Celts, and goes through the Angle/Saxon invasions, the Viking invasions, and finally the Norman invasion.   It provides a complete picture of the Norman invasion and the subsequent conflicts between the Anglo-Saxon people and their Norman conquerors.    It is not a pure military history, but a general history with a heavy dose of military.  It continues the story of the Normans in England through the murder of Thomas Beckett, Archbishop of Canterbury.

This work is sold only as a set for $50 because it was split into two parts on the basis of page count, not on the basis of a logical breaking point in the subject matter.  Postage within the US is the same and please order from the website.  However, for international orders, please contact me at drnafziger@yahoo.com and I will get you a quote on postage so we can work out payment outside of the website.  Sorry.  Postage is a royal pain and I cannot program the website to deal with a two book shipment overseas.
