1066 : The Battles of York, Stamford Bridge and Hastings Paperback / softback


If ever there was a year of destiny for the British Isles, 1066 must have a strong claim.

King Harold faced invasion not just from William and the Normans across the English Channel but from the Dane, King Harald Hadrada.

Before he faced the Normans at Hastings in October he had fought and defeated the Danes at York and neighbouring Stamford Bridge in September.

What dramatic changes of fortune, heroic marches, assaults by land and sea took place that year!

This book explains what really happened and why in what is arguably the 'best-known' but worst understood battle in British history.
