From the Publisher:

William the Conqueror was a formidable personality, whose political imagination and ruthless will were the driving force of the Norman Conquest of England. In this biography, David Bates describes the full scope of William’s achievements in both Normandy and England, setting them firmly in the context of Europe in an age of change and turmoil. William showed himself to be an outstanding soldier and an extremely effective ruler, who combined great fortitude with an unbending insistence on his own authority. He was also cruel, greedy and intolerant—a man who pitilessly stamped out opposition and shamelessly manipulated facts to justify dubious enterprises.

David Bates is Professor of Medieval History at the University of Glasgow and is regarded as a leading expert on William the Conqueror. His other books include Domesday Book, also published by Tempus.

Review:

“No one is better qualified... to interpret King William’s character” -- History
