Description

This is the fascinating story William Marshal who negotiated the  brutal realities of medieval warfare and the conflicting demands of  chivalric ideals, and who against the odds defeated the joint French and  rebel forces in arguably the most important battle in medieval English  history - overshadowing even Agincourt.In 1217 England was facing  her darkest hour, with foreign troops pillaging the country and defeat  close at hand. But, at the battle of Lincoln, the seventy-year-old  William Marshal led his men to a victory that would secure the future of  his nation. Earl of Pembroke, right-hand man to three kings and regent  for a fourth, Marshal was one of the most celebrated men in Europe, yet  is virtually unknown today, his impact and influence largely forgotten.
