The Normans, Paperback

The Normans Paperback

Part of the Elite series


Osprey's study of the Normans during the Middle Ages.

Despite the small geographic extent of Normandy its people played a crucial role in the history of the medieval world.

Ferocity, boundless energy, cunning and a capacity for leadership were their heritage, to which modern scholars would add supreme adaptability and a simple piety.

Their amazing military successes resulted from careful planning, speed of movement, decisiveness, daring and sheer ruthlessness.

Added to this was a strong business sense and an appreciation of the value of money.

Veteran Osprey author David Nicolle describes the history, arms and armour of the remarkable Normans in this fascinating volume.
