WARRIORS: THE LEGENDARY TALES AND HISTORICAL TRUTHS OF THE MOST NOTORIOUS

In this volume, the author not only investigates the stories behind some of the great myths, legends and real stories but places each within its context to the extent that we're able to distinguish the true elements and separate them from pure fable, are able to learn of lifestyles and other exploits, and truly place the characters within their world, using their weapons, fighting their battles, exercising their power or contesting for good or evil in their world. Deeply researched, with illustrations from diverse sources, and written in a style that will suit historians as well as the newcomer to the subject, this captivating volume will educate and inform but will principally enthuse; the reader will surely be encouraged to begin, or continue, the search for the great personalities of historical myth and reality. The book contains dedicated chapters on the following warriors: King Arthur, Dracula, Achilles, Beowulf, Robin Hood, Macbeth, Hiawatha, Roland, Cuchulain and William Wallace.
