Chronological recounting of the life of King Stephen of England between the years 1135 and 1154 (i.e. the entirety of his reign) - also known as the period of "the anarchy," "when Christ and his saints slept" and Stephen and his cousin the Empress Matilda (daughter of Stephen's predecessor Henry I) battled for control of England and Normandy. I'm not well-informed enough to know whether the history has been superseded by later scholars, but the book itself is short and extremely readable.
