Sword at Sunset

@ Rosemary Sutcliff (fantasy, history)
8.2

For fourteen centuries the story of Arthur was a legend, misted over by the tradition of romantic hero-tales. But he was real – a man of towering strength, a dreamer and a warrior – who actually lived, and fought, and died for his impossible dream.

The man whom legend calls Arthur of Britain combined the best of Roman civilization with the fierce dedication of his Celtic ancestors.

Down through the generations his passionate determination to preserve the values of decency and freedom against the darkness of barbarism has been a clarion call that speaks to the best in humankind.
