It would appear that what I said at the end of yesterday’s post has done some good.

Before I read Jack Eason’s historical fiction novella, Autumn 1066, I knew nothing about Britain’s entry into the Middle Ages. I had no idea there was an end of Anglo-Saxon dominance. My interest centered on other well-known war histories. All of that changed reading the first pages of Autumn 1066. His introduction to two warriors, Aldred and Cynric brought the story to realistic life. Eason’s description of various army leaders in fierce competition for the throne set up the background for why the battles took place. The intrigue and intertwining of the characters relationships and motives to win kept my interest. Eason moved the story along with vivid descriptions of hand-to-hand combat, volley of arrows raining down, and shield walls set up and broken. One clever leader borrowed the Roman tactic of the armored Turtle formation that made the warriors invulnerable to anything hurled at them as they marched uphill into battle. Jack Eason kept a good balance between historical facts and a compelling story, well worth the read.
