41 HOWARTH, DAVID; FLOYD, GARETH (ILLUSTRATIONS TO CHAPTER HEADINGS). 1066: The Year Of The Conquest.
The Viking Press, New York: 1978. 0670696013 / 9780670696017 Third Printing. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
Everyone knows 1066 as the date of the norman invasion and conquest of England. But how many of us can place that event in the context of the entire drfamatic year in which it took place? From the death of Edward the Confessor in early January to the Christmas coronation of Duke William of Normandy, there is an almost uncanny symmetry, as well as a relentlessly exciting surge, of events leading to and from Hastings. Howarth gives us memorable portraits of the leading characters and their motivations. At the same time, he makes us see the story from the common Englishman's point of view telling us how he lived, worked, fought and died - and how he perceived from his isolated shire the overthrow of his world. Includes an Index.
