When the Vikings invaded and conquered England, France, and Ireland, they opened a new and fascinating chapter in their history. The nature of the beset lands, the traditions and character of their peoples, and the strengths and weaknesses of the various Viking leaders made each of these three invasions distinct from the others. And each produced a different and surprising result. In sum, award-winning journalist Robert Wernick asserts in this provocative short-form book, they forever altered the course of medieval history.

About the Author
Salvador Dali once called him the stupidest man in the world; Cary Grant described him as the smartest. New York Times bestselling author Robert Wernick is certainly talented. He has penned more than a dozen books and has contributed to a host of magazines, ranging from Life to Vanity Fair. His topics are as varied as the birth of town planning in the Mesolithic Age to a soul-baring Ferris-wheel ride with Marilyn Monroe to a climb up Mount Sinai. He has made his home in Manhattan, Algiers, a ranch in the Nevada desert, San Francisco, the Basque coast, the Golden Isles of Georgia, and, most recently, the Fourteenth Arrondissement of Paris.
