In this biography, David Bates describes the full scope of William's achievements in both Normandy and England, setting them firmly in the context of Europe in an age of change and turmoil. William showed himself to be an outstanding soldier and an extremely effective ruler, who combined great fortitude with an unbending insistence on his own authority. He was also cruel, greedy, and intolerant - a man who pitilessly stamped out opposition and shamelessly manipulated facts to justify dubious enterprises.
