Review:
A full and well-researched narrative ... makes for a powerful and gripping read showing a mastery of the sources.... [McGlynn] keeps the reader turning the pages. Moreover he has plenty of good vignettes to offer. Few readers will forget the colourful character William of Kensham, nicknamed Willikin of the Weald...who may have provided inspiration for the Robin Hood stories. A lively and wide-ranging study. --Nigel Saul, 'History Today'
