The Hammer and the Cross: Robert Ferguson

Medieval European history: not for everyone, perhaps, but for those so inclined you can do a lot worse than this (as I have, too often, as testified by an ever-growing pile of never-to-be-finished doorstops). And because I liked it, and more importantly because I finished it (and also because it’s highly accessible but not dumbed down and exhaustive without being exhausting), I’m insisting on recommending it; if only because one day you too may feel the need to know more about the Vikings beyond a plethora of slightly misinformed nuggets.
