Starting with what is known of his life and progressing through logic, commonsense and scientific probability, this book builds a profile of King Arthur and attempts to establish his true place in English history. Whilst providing an analysis of his battle campaigns, it also examines the claim that the English language, as it is spoken today, is due mainly to the effectiveness of King Arthur’s military tenacity.
