Description

‘I live and by God’s help will conquer yet!’ William the conqueror, William the Conqueror’s invasion of England. The great battle fought near the English seaside town of Hastings on October 14th 1066 was perhaps the most significant in England’s history. The great victory won that day by Duke William of Normandy over Harold II of England was to shape forever the destiny of a nation. For at the end of a day of furious battle, the sun set not only on the dead and wounded who littered Senlac Hill, but also on the entire Anglo-Saxon way of life. ‘The Battle of Hastings’ features atmospheric original reconstruction and re-enactment footage, plus dramatised eye-witness’ accounts. The very latest 3D computer mapping techniques combine with delightful images from the remarkable Bayeux Tapestry to tell the dramatic story of a battle which remains one of the most famous in military history. Narrated by Michael Leighton. Featuring expert comment and analysis by Dr David Chandler, the world’s foremost military historian and former head of War Studies at Sandhurst.
