Count Bohemond was a Norman adventurer. History records his meteoric progress from junior member of a Norman warlord's household in Sicily to his conquests in the Middle East. Alfred Duggan's historical novel reveals how Count Bohemond challenged the Byzantine Empire, first defeating then allying himself with the wily Emperor Alexius. And how Bohemond outwits the high-born leaders of the First Crusade to carve out his own kingdom in the Holy Land.
