Return to the days of the Norman invasion of England and fight alongside a nobleman serving the last of England's Anglo-Saxon monarchs. Wulf of Steyning, a Saxon thane loyal to King Harold Godwinson, boldly captures a castle in the Welsh wars, risks his life to rescue his shipwrecked sovereign, and combats Norsemen at the Battle of Stamford Bridge. Wulf and his comrades resolutely stand by King Harold in a series of adventures that climax at the Battle of Hastings. Generations of readers have thrilled to this tale of loyalty and courage in eleventh-century Britain and Normandy. Author G. A. Henty created it in conjunction with his popular series of storybooks in which young characters, inspired by their encounters with real-life figures, perform heroic deeds. Historical fiction at its very best, Wulf the Saxon offers boys and girls an exciting adventure in the medieval world.

An action-filled fictitious account of events leading up to the real Battle of Hastings of 1066. Put away the action video game to let your mind's eye visualize the slaying of armies of Bretons, Welsh and Norse. An intricate plot and good characterization of spies, assassins, and duplicitous earls. The story illustrates the importance of planning, communication and discipline in warfare - and the uncontrollable impact of luck.
