About the Book

England will soon be invaded from two directions. What will its king do? Thus confronted is Harold Godwinson, the realm’s monarch in 1066. He had been chosen king by his dying predecessor although that monarch, Edward, had earlier promised the kingship to William, the ruthless (and bastard) duke of Normandy. But while William builds a fleet and gathers an army of invasion, Harald Hardrada, fierce ruler of Norway, raids North East England. Its Saxon king, Harold, ponders whether to march his army north to confront the Vikings or to defend the southern coast against the Normans. What will he decide? The fate of Saxon England dangles between two swords stretching from Europe and Scandinavia and bracketing its one army. King Harold’s military campaign decision could lead to the subjugation of England by one or both invaders or its prevention. Read on . . .
