    The years of bloody war fought for the throne of England after the death of Henry l are not covered particularly well (IMO) in British history. There may be a passing knowledge of Maud and Stephen but how many people know who they were and why the spent eighteen years slaughtering each other's followers and many more besides.Laurel A. Rockefeller uses her inimitable style to pass on this knowledge in a way Young Adults can understand - and not so Y/A can also enjoy.I can honestly say I knew quite a lot about the Maud/Stephen years in England but absolutely nothing about Matilda (Maud) in her earlier years - not even why she was an Empress. I am much better informed now.There are passages in German which may cause a few moments of confusion but they can be worked out given the context surrounding them. I nearly dropped a star rating because of them but after some thought decided they add to the story rather than detract from it.Although the author is American these books are so good, so well researched, that they would not be out of place in any school library.
