Later Printing [1956]. From the cover: “The Conqueror’s Domesday Book stopped short at the foot of the Cumberland fells; for in the heights of what is now the Lake District stood the entrenched Vikings, indomitable and unconquerable, and not all the resources of Norman England could break into the last Norse stronghold. Their defence, their shield ring, was not only the high barrier of the fells; it was the fanatical Norse spirit of battle, the burning determination to hold out against overwhelming odds.”
