The Conquering Family

The Conquering Family

(1949)
(The first book in the Plantagenets series)
A non fiction book by

 
Thomas B. Costain's four-volume history of the Plantagenets begins with THE CONQUERING FAMILY and the conquest of England by William the Conqueror in 1066, closing with the reign of John in 1216.

The troubled period after the Norman Conquest, when the foundations of government were hammered out between monarch and people, comes to life through Costain's storytelling skill and historical imagination.

"Brilliant, swift-moving, full of action, rich in color." (B-O-M-C News)

THE CONQUERING FAMILY is the first in A History of the Plantagenets, and is followed by THE MAGNIFICENT CENTURY.
