The Normans and Their Adversaries at War, edited by Richard Abels and Bernard Bachrach, is an important new collection of original essays dedicated to the memory of the late C. Warren Hollister. Before he turned his attention to Henry I and the prosopography of the Anglo-Norman aristocracy, Warren Hollister earned his initial reputation as an innovative and influential historian of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman military institutions. Following his lead, the distinguished group of contributors to this present volume, Warren Hollister's colleagues and students, draw upon their individual expertise to examine and illuminate the institutions that supported and shaped the conduct of war in northwestern Europe in the central Middle Ages. The result is an exciting and provocative volume that challenges received opinion and forces a profound reconsideration of the manner in which the Normans and their adversaries, Anglo-Saxons, Danes, Angevins, and the Welsh, prepared for and waged war. The articles are by Richard Abels, Bernard Bachrach, Kelly DeVries, John France, C.M. Gillmor, Robert Helmerichs, Niels Lund, Stephen Morillo, Michael Prestwich and Frederick Suppe, with an introduction by Richard Barton and a personal appreciation of C. Warren Hollister by Robin Fleming.
