The Winter King by Bernard Cornwell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another Arthurian legend with a twist, but very much in line of a Britain in decline towards the dark ages.
Not your Morte D'Arthur variety, Bernard Cornwell's Arthur is a warlord, not a King, albeit a far-seeing leader in search of a united Britain as a last defence against the encroaching Saxons.
We know the rest, the Saxons won and Britain became England, entering into popular obscurity until the Norman Conquest.
