This assault was only the beginning, within 18 months huge areas of the British coast was being devastated by the terrifying ships and their fierce, destructive fighting men. Who were these mysterious raiders? In this book, veteran historian Angus Konstam answers that question, and many more besides. The result is a book that uncovers the world of the Viking in a way which has never been done before, and presented in a highly accessible yet informative way.
