What an incredible life! One hair-raising escape from certain death after another. Not history light. Rather a very well-written biography. Warrior and king's counselor, Marshal lived to be praised as the model of the chivalrous knight by his contemporaries.

I can't even explain how much I loved this book. Such an excellent biography of a man who deserves to be remembered.

William Marshal was a remarkable man in a remarkable time. From his near-death experience at age five at the hand of King Stephen, to leading his final charge at the age of 70 at Lincoln, Marshal's life is truly extraordinary. And unlike many of his contemporaries, he was afforded what they were not - the chance to withdraw from court life and spend his final days at home in the comfort of his own bed, his family beside him.
