Description: (Osprey, London, 1997), reprint.. 96 pp, large 8vo (9 3/4" H), soft cover. Profusely illustrated in color and b&w with photos, reproductions, maps, battle plans, uniform studies. "The most famous battle in English history, Hastings was the culmination of one of the medieval world' s most daring military expeditions - and a truly decisive battle. It marked the end of Anglo-Saxon England, winning the land-hungry Normans a new kingdom, and ensuring that Britain's destiny lay in Western Europe rather than with Scandinavia." "The Osprey Campaign Series presents concise, authoritative accounts of the great conflicts of history. Each volume begins with an assessment of each commander's campaign strategy, then recounts the progress of the fighting, blow-by-blow. More than 90 illustrations, including maps, charts and colour plates accompany the text, and a series of three-dimensional battle maps mark the critical stages of the campaign. Each volume concludes with a brief guide to the battlefield today, and detailed notes for wargamers." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - clean and bright, flat uncreased spine. NF.
