By John Guy


Thomas Becket lived at the centre of medieval England. He was befriended and favoured by Henry II and quickly ascended the rungs of power and privilege. His story is one of enigma, as well as of one of the most tumultuous periods in English history. Drawing on a vast array of contemporary records, personal letters and first-hand accounts, John Guy has reconstructed a compelling and convincing account of this most remarkable man, the dramatic times in which he lived and the pivotal role he played in his nation's history.
