    I picked this book up after rejecting Peter Ackroyd's "Tudors" partly because it was the middle book in his 5 book series, and also because I didn't like his style. I was hoping for more explanation from Barratt's book on Henry II and his sons, but unfortunately that wasn't to be-- eve...

    A rather odd and disjointed book which contains only five chapters and an intrduction to cover the reigns of three kings from 1154 to 1216. We start off in the introduction and in the beginning of chapter 1, weirdly enough, with a few pages about the Merovingians and Charlemagne and th...

    This history jumps all over the place from endings to beginnings to middle of reign back and forth through the years of Henry II, Richard I and John. In some books that jumping around format would be the kiss of death but Barratt manages it very nicely and produces a very readable stud...

    While the chronology was somewhat annoying (in terms of starting each chapter essentially with a spoiler - for example, with Richard being shot and dying at the beginning of the chapter about his reign), I thought that the overall book tells an interesting story. I think that this woul...
