Horrible Histories: Knights: A High-Speed History

Get your lance and shield ready, and giddy up your white charger for a super-speedy, blood-spattered quest into the nasty world of knights! In this comic-strip caper, the long and complicated story of knights is told as never before – without being long or complicated! Dare you face all the dreadful details of that supposedly chivalrous era? Then strap on your spurs and set off on your terror-filled tour of the measly medieval world, from awful England to the cruel Crusades. Prepare for quests, jousts, castles, wars, boiling oil, sharpened spears and damsels in distress! History has never been so speedy!
