As the introduction to this book points out, the last invasion was not by the Normans in 1066, it was by the French, near Fishguard in Wales. We actually covered this is in a previous issue of The Armourer, but here the author has the space to go into the political situation in France that led to having 1,400 Frenchman rampaging through the streets and how the local women helped defeat them.

 

Combined with an illustrative black and white plate section in the middle, this is an interesting and entertaining look the ill-advised invasion.
