really liked it
bookshelves: france, non-fiction

A look at a real-life trial-by-combat in France that I found absorbing to read, and a real eye-opener. Compared to a lot of the silliness written out there about the subject (it seems to crop up a lot in historical fiction), this is the real thing. Recommended for anyone interested in medieval life.
