Wilson deftly chronicles Charlemagne's military exploits, political intrigues, and religious devotion."--"Publishers Weekly" on "Charlemagne""I cannot praise too highly Derek Wilson's prose style, which is both masterful and lively. He writes with great conviction and a breathtaking attention to the kind of personal detail that makes his books such compelling reading."--Alison Weir on "In the Lion's Court""The ambition of Wilson's plan lies in the fact that he does not offer us six separate studies . . . but presents one complex, rich narrative. . . . This plan is carried out with attractive energy and zest. . . . He has written a useful and stimulating book about [Britain's] most important dynasty."--Antonia Fraser, "Sunday Times" (UK) on "In the Lion's Court""A masterly study."--"Daily Telegraph" (UK) on "Rothschild""An intriguing and compelling story . . .
