READ ↠ ueen Emma and the Vikings Power Love and Greed in 11th Century England Mark on a nation beset by Viking raiders at the end of the Dark Ages At the center of a triangle of Anglo Saxons Vikings and Normans all jostling for control of England Emma was a political pawn who became an unscrupulous man. This is a uality book with beautiful printing and a very interesting subject I had high hopes that this book would be a well informed and analogous to Dan Jones s Wars of the Roses but in a different time period Emma is a very interesting subject whose life spans several cultures and a tumultuous era of European history Unfortunately the facts are uite thin That would be okay if the author didn t fill in the gaps with admittedly outlandish speculation that directly contradicts well informed books on the same subjects It got to the point where every sentence was packed with weasel words probably maybe we can guess and so on and then it became clear that the author was substituting modern caricatures of medieval life in place of facts Women are depicted as powerless units of property with enough maybe and probably to cover her directly in contradiction to other books on the subject Having just read a treatise by Christine Fell on women in Anglo Saxon women I wanted to get an idea of how things were different in the Norman world Instead of just saying we don t know the author fills in a best guess that has no basis in fact I had to stop reading Awakening had Call Me By Your Name high The Mark of Athena hopes that this book would be a well informed and analogous to Dan Jones s Wars of the Roses but in a different time period Emma is a very interesting subject whose life spans several cultures and a tumultuous era of European 2002 Index of Economic Freedom history Unfortunately the facts are uite thin That would be okay if the author didn t fill in the gaps with admittedly outlandish speculation that directly contradicts well informed books on the same subjects It got to the point where every sentence was packed with weasel words probably maybe we can guess and so on and then it became clear that the author was substituting modern caricatures of medieval life in place of facts Women are depicted as powerless units of property with enough maybe and probably to cover Grenadier Volume 7 Grenadier her directly in contradiction to other books on the subject Having just read a treatise by Christine Fell on women in Anglo Saxon women I wanted to get an idea of Alice in Wonderland how things were different in the Norman world Instead of just saying we don t know the author fills in a best guess that The Great Game The Struggle for Empire in Central Asia has no basis in fact I Claudette Colvin Twice Toward Justice had to stop reading
