New Book about King Arthur. King Arthur's Battle for Britain by Eric Walmsley

In King Arthur's Battle for Britain, Eric Walmsley deftly imagines King Arthur's famous twelve battles, using sources such as Gildas and Nennius.  He makes the courageous war leader come to life.  Detailed descriptions of Arthur's probable war strategies and t he feasts and ceremonies of his times ensure that this is vivid reading.  However, I did feel that the romance and the dialogue were a bit flowery.

This is an interesting book for anyone who loves British history.. It is probably advisable to read it with a map.
