Osprey Special Editions (Military) : The Vikings : Voyagers of Discovery and Plunder

'What a tapestry this book presents! What a splendid pageant of history and story!' Magnus Magnusson The history of the Vikings is bloody and eventful, and Viking warriors capture the popular imagination to this day. Viking raids reached from Norway to North Africa, they established the dukedom of Normandy, provided the Byzantine Emperor's bodyguard and landed on the shores of America 500 years before Columbus. The authors provide a detailed examination of the Viking Hersir, the raiding warrior of the Viking world, and the famed Viking longship that transported the Vikings through treacherous waters to their bloody raids. This beautifully illustrated book includes new material about the Vikings in North America and the lives the Viking led at home. Contains material previously published in Elite 3, Warrior 3 and New Vanguard 47. Text by Mark Harrison, Keith Durham and Ian Heath.
