ByG. A. Henty

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In the late 9th century, the Saxons of Britain were terrorized by Danish Vikings. The invaders attacked and pillaged towns, plundering and destroying even churches and monasteries. Alfred, son of Ethelwulf, became king of Wessex in 871, and counterattacked the Danes. Through several tactical and strategic victories, King Alfred was able to lead his countrymen out from their subjugation. Following the historical accounts given in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle and by the Welsh monk Asser, G. A. Henty creates a lively account of this period in British history. (6"x9" extra large print [17 point] paperback with 8 full page illustrations; includes footnotes defining obscure or uncommon words)
