"Castle at War: The Story of a Siege" is an interesting resource that could be used to teach many things. Yes, we can teach about castles and different sieges that have taken place, but there are life lessons here as well. The emphasis placed on preparation, teamwork, and creating a firm foundation provide an interesting and fun opportunity to share the importance of these things with children. The images and "story line" are interesting and useful. Overall, this is pretty good stuff!

Recommends it for: Children, anyone interested in learning a bit about medieval Europe
This is an excellent, concise yet in-depth, account of feudal war and court life in medieval Europe. It gives you the basics without overwhelming you with details. Not a scholarly book, but a great introduction for those interested in the times.
