1066, Senlac Ridge, England: William the Bastard, Duke of Normandy, defeats Harold Godwinson, King Harold II of England, in what will become known as the Battle of Hastings. The battle is hard fought and bloody, the lives of thousands have been spent, including that of King Harold. But England will not be conquered easily; the Anglo-Saxons will not submit meekly to Norman rule. Although his heroic deeds will nearly be lost to legend, one man unites the resistance. His name is Hereward of Bourne, the champion of the English. His honor, bravery, and skill at arms will change the future of England. His is the legacy of the noble outlaw. This is his story.

About the Author:

Stewart Binns began his professional life as an academic. He then pursued several adventures, including a stint at the BBC, before settling into a career as a school teacher, specializing in history. Later in life, a lucky break took him back to the BBC, which was the beginning of a successful career in television. He has won a BAFTA, a Grierson, an RTS, and a Peabody for his documentaries.

Review:

"Stewart Binns has produced a real page-turner, a truly stunning adventure story. . . he knows how to hold the reader's attention. . . I can thoroughly recommend this book.”  —Alastair Campbell, communicator, writer, strategist

"Conquest is a wonderful book. A compelling story. . . I could not put it down and read it in just three sessions. It is a gripping page-turner, beautifully written, replete with wonderful historical detail. The author paints amazingly vivid pictures and uses the language with great skill and warmth.”  —Celia Sandys, author, presenter, and granddaughter of Winston Churchill

"Hereward of Bourne, is the real deal and this book brings him to life and the events around him in amazing detail. I couldn't put it down. It's a gripping adventure story but the way the real events and characters are portrayed is a big bonus. History freaks will love it and those who don't know the period will want to know more. Read it!”  —Daley Thompson, decathlete and double Olympic Gold Medalist 1980 & 1984
