Age of Charlemagne (Men at Arms, 150)
by David Nicolle, Martin Windrow
Book Description: 50 b/w, 8 color 7 x 9 Trade edition of Men-At-Arms 150 Most historians agree that the Carolingian Age, from the 8th to 10th centuries AD, represented one of the most important turning points in European history. The adoption of the stirrup and subsequently of early versions of the high-framed war saddle, plus the pressure of rival and essentially non-western European cultures, combined to give birth to what are popularly regarded as medieval European styles of warfare. This absorbing text by David Nicolle explores the organization and history of the Carolingian Empire during the age of one of history's most romanticized and heroic figures, Charlemagne.

Bulfinch's Mythology : The Age of Fable : The Age of Chivalry : Legends of Charlemagne
by Thomas Bulfinch
Book Description: Thomas Bulfinch (1796-1867) was the son of Charles Bulfinch, the architect of the Capitol building in Washington, DC.  Thomas Bulfinch is considered to be an American historian and reteller of myths and legends even though he worked on his book during intervals in his banking career.  His works - "The Age of Fables" (1855), "The Age of Chivalry" (1858), and " The Legends of Charlemagne" (1863) - are normally termed "Bulfinch's Mythology".  These works were aimed at the young adult reader and were very popular when first published and today.
