This book describes one of the crucial steps in the building of "Christendom," i.e., it describes the entry of England in 1066 A.D. into the European Christian unity which was then coming to birth. It also gives a true picture of a Catholic military leader who, despite his sins, took seriously the Catholic Faith and his obligations thereto. Essential for understanding where our Western Christian civilization came from.
