Wulf the Saxon is a classic George Henty tale of nobility, loyalty and courage set in 11th century Britain. It relates the adventures of Wulf, a young, but extremely capable Saxon Thane. Wulf with his friends and servitors devote their lives to the service of Harold Godwinson, both before and after he becomes king of England. They are directly involved in capturing castles, rescuing shipwreck survivors, foiling assassination attempts and entering the terrible battles at Stamford Bridge and Senlac field by Hastings. The background of the novel is set in the stormy period prior to the Norman conquest of Britain and the story centers around real people and events, even offering a historically correct and lucid insight to the intrigues surrounding the religious and political alliances which led to the events of 1066; an absolute turning point in England's history.

Book is excellent adventure story aimed at younger readers, but is a worthy excursion for adult readers as well. The reader is one of the finest I've heard.

truly a masterpiece of historical fiction. I love the narration too.

very good

(5 Sterne)

👌this was excellent. The reader in the story was very good. I preferred the part about Wales more than about the famous battle. I will continue reading more by this author. Too bad they were not more books by the reader. He did an excellent job!
