Alfred's Wars: Sources and Interpretations of Anglo-Saxon Warfare in the Viking Age by Ryan Lavelle

Selected by Choice for the 2011 list of Outstanding Academic Titles.

The warfare of the late Anglo-Saxon period had momentous consequences for the development of the English state following Alfred the Great's reign. This book provides a comprehensive guide, with extracts in translation from the principal sources for our knowledge, accompanied by the most important interpretations by scholars through the ages, and new introductions by the present author. It looks at every aspect of the topic, from land and sea forces to logistics and campaigning, from fortifications and the battlefield to the final peacemaking. In so doing, it highlights the significance of warfare and its organisation for the late Anglo-Saxon state, and the multitude of ways in which it was recorded and remembered.

Dr Ryan Lavelle is Senior Lecturer in Medieval History at the University of Winchester.
