The Normans wreaked havoc across the country and changed the history of England forever. This full-scale biography of England's last Anglo-Saxon king reveals an astute political operator who, as Earl of Wessex, won the affection of the English people and the support of Edward the Confessor to succeed him.
Peter Rex tells the story of a formidable warrior-king killed in battle in defence of his kingdom.
