"Not only does it pose the challenging question where the Battle of Hastings was fought, it is also a gripping account of the run-up to and the battle itself and I did find it an enjoyable read. I love also the guide through the almost impenetrable who's' who of the claimants of the throne at that time." Howard Leader BBC Lincolnshire & BBC Humberside "The book bowls along and is a real page turner" History Today
