The English Resistance
Available in Stock
‘Presenting an unfamiliar facet of a familiar story’, Peter Rex focuses, not on the success of the Norman Conquest, but on resistance to it. He identifies the leaders of the resistance, the collaborators who worked with the Normans, and the conflict between the two; he then goes on to examine all the campaigns of the resistance movement from 1067 to 1071 and the reasons for their successes and failures. Finally, Rex concentrates on the activities of Hereward and his last stand against William at Ely.
