The Normans, Paperback Book

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.
