    One thought on “Montfort: The Angel with the Sword - 1260 to 1265”

    1. This is part 4 of the series on Montfort I enjoyed this telling of the tale, and the contrast with the books by Sharon Kay Penman Interesting to see the different takes on the same basic set of events, thought this series focused centrally on Simon de Montfort, while the other was split between Montfort and Llewelyn of Wales Very different take on Simon s wife and his relationship with the queen, too.

    2. Thank goodness I have reached the end of this series I had hoped for so much The story of Simon de Montfort is one that should be known, and unfortunately these books do not do him justice Henry III is failing, but now Prince Edward is of age, and time and time again Simon just wants to go to Palestine to make peace among the Saracens even though the English continue to call him back after he has been tried for treason on than one occasion He wants the King to be accountable to the subjects, a [...]

    3. Knowing how Simon De Montfort s life ended, I found it difficult to read this quickly I love Ashe s characterization of this man and admire him from a historical viewpoint as well This, along with the three previous books in the series, was well written, exciting, and rich in detail.

    4. A historical novel are on the church in England and it s Royals.Very detailed story of a very turbulent time of the political trails of middle England and their allies and enemies.

    5. This book is a 2012 B.R.A.G.Medallion Honoree and honor that tells readers this books is well worth their time and money

    6. Ploughed through the last 2 quickly as there is only so much I can take of long descriptions of medieval battles I realize Simon was ahead of his time but Books 3 4 should have been titled Blind Faith or Einstein s Definition of Insanity as he constantly believes Henry and Edward and is always rewarded with treachery Pigheaded is another word that comes to mind as well Given the 2 volumes pretty much dedicated solely to battles, I d have thought that post Simon s Seth would have warranted than [...]
