Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Were barbarians merely vicious savages? Did the Vikings really wear those horned helmets into battle? Each entry in the Fearsome Fighters series examines the fighting techniques, rise and fall, key figures, and cultures of these combative groups. In the process, the books debunk stereotypes and reveal these fighters' impact on society today. Vikings looks at militaristic advancements, including innovations in shipbuilding and nautical techniques, as well as the role of women in their society. Artistic reproductions and color photographs of historic sites and relics, many full page, offer attractive imagery, while numerous sidebars, such as the Mongols' use of paper money backed by gold, silver, or silk, add interesting details. Informative with a touch of beauty.--Leeper, Angela Copyright 2010 Booklist"
