About this title

Synopsis:

Georges Duby, one of this century's great medieval historians, has brought to life with exceptional brilliance and imagination William Marshal, adviser to the Plantagenets, knight extraordinaire, the flower of chivalry. A marvel of historical reconstruction, William Marshal is based on a biographical poem written in the thirteenth century, and offers an evocation of chivalric life—the contests and tournaments, the rites of war, the daily details of medieval existence—unlike any we have ever seen.

From the Publisher:

"A small masterpiece of its genre...Duby has reconstructed a living picture of a particular sector of society at a crucial moment, at the brink of a great change...He presents his picture of the fascinating and eventful life of the Marshal, and of the world in which he lived, [with] vividness...intimacy, and...historical perception." --The New York Review of Books
