Intended as a military biography, this book studies the scope of Henry Plantagenet's warfare during his tenure as count of Anjou, duke of Normandy, and king of England. Relying heavily upon medieval documents, it analyzes his generalship and reexamines his place amongst the important military commanders in English history.

Review:

Hosler s book is a welcome addition to the history of twelfth-century Europe, correctly asserting the central importance of war, the preparation for war, and war s aftermath to all aspects of life this work will be valuable for specialists in medieval military history and the history of twelfth-century Europe, for graduate students, and for advanced undergraduates. David S. Bachrach in Journal of Military History, Oct 2007, Vol. 71/4 "Gelingt, genuin militargeschichtliche Befunde in den allgemeinen Forschungsstand zu Heinirch II. zu integrieren...Die gebotene Befunde...und die intensive Aufarbetung der Quellenlage machen die Lekture des flussig geschiebenen Werkes...zu einen Gewinn." Holger Berwinkel, Deutsches Archiv fur Erfoschung des Mittelalters 65,1 (2009) 421-422"

Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. There are no book-length studies in any language on the military career of King Henry II of England (1154-1189). Historians have generally regarded his warfare as cautious and limited, and the king himself, while noted for his considerable political and legal accomplishments, is not considered one of the great commanders of the Middle Ages. This book reexamines the medieval evidence and situates Henry II within the context of practiced warfare of the twelfth century. It sketches a narrative of his military activities from boyhood to death and examines his use of fortifications, manpower, strategy, tactics, and weaponry in the prosecution of war. The result is a revision of the king s military legacy: far from a passive or disinterested general, Henry II sought to vanquish his foes and expand his empire by way of direct military confrontation and was, in reality, a proficient commander of men.
