The Last Duel: A True Story of Crime, Scandal, and Trial by Combat in Medieval France

Fascinating read! This is the true story of a very famous duel in France in the 1300's. A knight challenges a squire to battle over the rape of his wife. Lots of details are included about the legal system in France back then and how this duel came about. All of it was interesting and I learned a lot about the period. It was also hard not to take sides while reading because the two men involved were so complicated and I switched my allegiance often!
