Notes:Subtitle: Edward I and the Forging of Britain

Biography of Edward 1, king of England from 1272 to 1307. He went on crusade, conquered Wales and, for a short time, conquered Scotland (until Robert the Bruce took it back). Edward was definitely a man of his times, but, for his time, he was considered fair and wise and brave.

Review - A Great and Terrible King

Well-written, interesting, and easy to follow. The past is a different planet, and it's hard to fully understand the sensibilities of the time. Edward had a great sense of his own importance, but at the same time, seemed to desire to do right as he understood it.
