Not one of Duggan's better books, but when compiled with "Lady For Ransom", and Runciman's "History of the Crusades, Vol. I" it really helps to build up a picture of the Age. While I see Bo. played by a blonde Burt Lancaster, I'm sure others have varying opinions on this point. ( )

I read this book as a teenager after everything by Rosemary Sutcliffe and Henry Treece, and thoughly enjoyed it. As far as I know it is reasonably historically accurate. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0304362735, Paperback)

Count Bohemond was a Norman adventurer. History records his meteoric progress from junior member of a Norman warlord's household in Sicily to his conquests in the Middle East. Alfred Duggan's historical novel reveals how Count Bohemond challenged the Byzantine Empire, first defeating then allying himself with the wily Emperor Alexius. And how Bohemond outwits the high-born, wealthy Crusader leaders who would have led the Crusade to disaster. It is an unrivalled depiction of medieval warfare, from the tactics of cavalry charges to the religious and philosophical beliefs that brought forth the Crusaders.
