about this book

Georges Duby has brought to life with exceptional brilliance and imagination William Marshal, adviser to the Pantagenets, knight extraordinaire, the flower of chivalry. A marvel of historical reconstruction, William Marshal is based on a biographical poem written in the 13th century, and offers an evocation of chivalric life--the contests and tournaments, the rites of war, the daily details of medieval existence--unlike any we have ever seen.

"An enchanting and profoundly instructive book."--George Steiner, New Yorker

"A small masterpiece of its genre...The vividness, the intimacy, and the historical perception with which he presents his picture of the fascinating and eventful life of Marshal, and of the world in which he lived, will win him readers not just among scholars."--New York Review of Books
