After the Conquest: The Divided Realm 1066-1135 by Teresa Cole

After the Conquest: The Divided Realm 1066-1135 by Teresa Cole
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.3 Mb
Overview: This is the story of the Norman dynasty after William the Conqueor and their divided realm. William the Conqueror’s youngest son Henry was never destined to be king. On his father’s death England and Normandy were carved up between his elder brothers William Rufus and Robert Curthose. Henry was left landless. Yet 20 years later Henry was master of both. The death of his brother, now King William Rufus, shot while hunting with Henry, may have been an accident, but Henry certainly acted swiftly to seize the crown. The defeat and imprisonment for life of Robert was certainly not accidental. Contemporaries considered Henry a harsh yet effective ruler. History has all but forgotten the achievements of his reign but it includes one of the great "what ifs" of history. Henry had always worked to truly unify his two realms and his only legitimate son, William Adelin, was integral to his plans. If William had not perished in the sinking of the White Ship, would England and Normandy still be united today?

1066: A New History of the Norman Conquest by Peter Rex

1066: A New History of the Norman Conquest by Peter Rex
Requirements: .ePUB and .MOBI readers | 3,193 MB
Overview: A radical retelling of the most important event in English history – the Norman invasion of 1066. The Norman Conquest is the single most important event in English history. On this invasion and ‘regime change’ pivoted the second millennium of English history. This is well recognised, what is not is how long and hard the English people fought to deny William ‘the Bastard’, Duke of Normandy his prize. Rather than being the smooth transition peddled by pro-Norman historians, the Norman Conquest was a brutal and violent takeover by an army of occupation. Unknown thousands of rebellious thegns resisted the Norman regime, the most famous being Hereward, but there were plenty of willing collaborators among England’s clergy, who pushed for William to be crowned king. In return he let them retain their sees and abbacies, as well as the vast tracts of land. Peter Rex tells the whole story of the Conquest of England by the Normans from its genesis in the deathbed decision of King Edward the Confessor in January 1066 to recommend Harold Godwinson as his successor, to the crushing of the last flickers of English resistance in June 1076.

Conquest Through Immigration by George W. Robnett

Conquest Through Immigration: How Zionism Turned Palestine into a Jewish State by George W. Robnett
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 837 KB
Overview: Published in 1968, this book was inspired by a tour through the Holy Land countries, which brought intimate contact with the pitiable spectacle of a million or so Palestinian Arab refugees. These people, who were once independent, self-supporting and even prosperous, have been dispossessed of their lifetime homes and possessions, hopelessly forsaken in primitive and isolated camps, scattered around the periphery of their traditional land to which their return is forbidden. After talking with many of these refugees, it was only natural for an inquiring mind to ask: "How could this happen in our modern ‘civilized’ world?" Why do people in America and Europe know so little about this human calamity for which they are partially responsible?
