The knight who saved England : William Marshal and the French invasion, 1217 by Richard Brooks( Book )
4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 105 libraries worldwide
"In 1217 England was facing her darkest hour, with foreign troops pillaging the country and defeat close at hand. But, at the battle of Lincoln, the seventy-year-old William Marshal led his men to a victory that would secure the future of his nation. Earl of Pembroke, right-hand man to three kings and regent for a fourth, Marshal was one of the most celebrated men in Europe, yet is virtually unknown today, his impact and influence largely forgotten. In this vivid account, the author blends colourful contemporary source material with new insights to uncover the tale of this unheralded icon. He traces the rise of Marshal from penniless younger son to renowned knight, national hero and defender of the Magna Carta. What emerges is a fascinating story of a man negotiating the brutal realities of medieval warfare and the conflicting demands of chivalric ideals, and who against the odds defeated the joint French and rebel forces in arguably the most important battle in medieval English history--overshadowing even Agincourt"--Back cover

Solferino, 1859 : the battle that won Italy its independence by Richard Brooks( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
The battle of Solferino, fought during the Franco-Austrian War of 1859, was the largest European battle since Leipzig in 1813. In the presence of three crowned heads of state-- Napoleon III of France, Emperor Franz-Joseph of Austria, and Victor Emmanuel II of Piedmont-Sardinia (later the King of all Italy)-- the armies clashed together in a bitterly fought contest that would leave more than 40,000 dead. As a crucial climax to the Second Italian War of Independence, this title covers the build-up to the battle, including actions at Montebello, Palestro, and Magenta that led to the decisive moment of the campaign. Full-color, battle-scene artwork and detailed maps illustrate this comprehensive account of the commanders, armies, plans, and aftermath of one of the bloodiest battles of the period
