This is the first book I have read about William the Conqueror and I enjoyed it very much. I had a hard time putting it down for the last 100 pages and read until 2AM to finish it. I am not sure how I feel about the Duke of Normandy--he was certainly intellectual and strategic but also very self-centered. I am going to start on Plaidy's Norman trilogy to see what perspective she gives. I did fall in love with Raoul de Harcourt, William's "watcher" and close friend. I do recomment this book.
