This saga chronicles the life of King Harald Hardradi (The Ruthless), the last of the great Viking kings. From his early life and travels to Constantinople to his death at the battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066, the saga provides a good picture of his life.

King Harald was important for a number of reasons and his late life both shaped modern history and brought an era to a close. His failed invasion of England deeply contributed to the Norman victory at Hastings, and he was widely reviled by Churchmen of his day, who felt he returned to pagan ways. Also it is by no means accidental that Gwyn Jones ("A History of the Vikings") ends the Viking Era with his death. Hence this saga is of great historical value in that it provides more information on a historically important figure.

Serious students, however, should skip this work, as it is an excerpt from a much larger collection entitled "Heimskringla" which is also available in a number of translations. For those who wish to simply read a short, fun, and action-packed saga, this book is for you.

This is an excellent publication for anyone interested in the Sagas of Iceland. The Saga can be found also in Heimskringla The Saga of the Kings.
In this dedicated publication, to the King Harald of Norway, the work is vital to anyone, and also to the scholar of Medievil History. I thoroughly recommend it.
This Kindle format is much cheaper to purchase than the main works on the Sagas.

Nicely presented with good notes and background information. A look into an important time and some idea of what people thought of their own history. If you are interested in the Sagas and especially about the time just before and including the Norman Conquest you'll want to read this.

Some parts are better than others but overall I had a difficult time getting through this one.

If your kid is named Harold or Harald, and other kids tease or stereotype this name; then buy your son this book and tell him he was named after a very powerful king and therefore is of royal lineage. My brother went through this when he came from from Norway to live in the USA at age 6. In his US grammar school, teachers kept telling him that he spelled his name wrong and that it should be spelled "Harold" when it was indeed legally spelled "Harald". But my brother held true to his Viking heritage and kept spelling his name Harald. He is doing rather well today with his music, bodybuilding, writing, investing and just being Harald.
AAMOF, one of his teachers who was adamant about him spelling his name Harold is now holding a minimum wage job at Wal-mart.

I got this book for my Viking History Class. It's alright, the writing is a bit rough but that's because it was translated to English.
it was for class requirement
