The ultimate battle is here

By David Churchill

  • Hardback
  • £20.99

The epic conclusion of the LEOPARDS OF NORMANDY trilogy from David Churchill, co-author of War Cry (Wilbur Smith). Here is the real-life game of thrones that lead to the defining moment of English history: 1066, Hastings and the victory of the Conqueror.

From the co-author of the No.1 bestselling Wilbur Smith novel, War Cry

The Leopards of Normandy trilogy concludes as Duke William prepares to take England, and his rivals, by storm. This real-life game of thrones lead to the defining the moment of English history: Hastings, 1066, and is a must-read for fans of Conn Iggulden, Bernard Cornwell and Ken Follett.

'An exciting mix of medieval betrayal, violence and sex' Wilbur Smith

It began with a promise. It will end at Hastings.

William of Normandy, sworn heir to the English throne, is no longer the boy Duke but a loyal and proven warrior. Few dare challenge him, but England is an irresistible prize.

The handsome, ambitious Harold Godwinson and the Viking Hardrada are both determined to stake a claim. William faces his greatest ever battle: deny his own destiny or conquer the land he was born to rule.

History will be written in the blood of those who fall.

What readers are saying about THE LEOPARDS OF NORMANDY:

'One of the best historical novels I have read. Well written, compelling, action-packed, good characters. This is seriously worth reading!'

'An exciting and well-told story, backed up by first class research, an extreme attention to detailand strong characterisation which also fits with the historical record. I thoroughly enjoyed it from cover to cover'
