Viking Warrior vs Anglo-Saxon Warrior by Osprey

An interesting upcoming book (due in August) by Gareth Williams, curator at the British Museum since 1996, examining the the weaponry, tactics, strategies and underlying military organization of the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, especially as revealed in three crucial battles: Ashdown in 871, Maldon in 991, and Stamford Bridge in 1066. Well worth a look. More info here.
