About This Book

John Peddie expertly examines the scale and intent of the relentless threat of conquest by the Viking sea-raiders, the military and logistical problems that beset both sides, and the strategies devised by King Alfred of Wessex which led to the reconquest of his Wessex homeland and the creation of England itself.
