Anarchy, the protracted struggle between Etienne de Blois and Empress Mathilde for the Crown of England between 1135 and 1154, is often considered a disaster of breakdown in one of the best rulers of the kingdoms of medieval Europe.But perhaps the impact of the conflict has been overestimated, and its effect on ordinary people across the country is difficult to judge.That’s why Chris Peerss’ study fees for this fascinating and controversial epoch is of such value.It describes each phase of this civil war, particularly the castles and sieges that dominated strategic thinking, and defines the battles in the context of the evolution of tactics and military systems of the twentieth century.His new account of this pivotal episode in the medieval history of England will absorb the reading of someone who is eager to have a glimpse of this period of English history and has a particular interest in the practice of medieval warfare.
