Yes, he was great

Alfred the Great. On the evening of the 5th of January, AD 878, he began to live both the most desperate part of his history and the most glorious.

Note from Jim Hodge:

Given your interest in Alfred, are you acquainted with Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Chronicles? Possibly too much action for some readers, but I found them spellbinding: (We did, too. -Ed.)

1. The Last Kingdom (2004)
2. The Pale Horseman (2005)
3. The Lords of the North (2006)
4. Sword Song (2007)
5. The Burning Land (2009)
6. Death of Kings (2011)
The Warrior Chronicles Vols 1-6 (omnibus) (2012)
