Cracking read. Knows a lot about France.
Review: The Capetians: Kings of France, 987-1328User Review - Simon Jones - Goodreads
Interesting to see things from the French perspective for historical events which are familiar from an English one, in particular the Angevin period and Third Crusade. Enjoyed it - leads nicely into the 100 years war. Read full review
