The Byzantine Empire rules in Southern Italy, but the indigenous populations are restless. The Lombards are no exception to this. One of their numbers, Arduin of Fassano, is appointed by a young Byzantine general to hold the key to Apulia. He is unaware that Arduin intends to join his Lombard brethren and rise up in revolt, hiring to aid him the Norman mercenaries of Campania. Led by William de Hauteville, the eldest of five mercenary brothers, the Normans cross into Apulia intent on more than aiding revolt: they are seeking land and titles for themselves. Will the might of the Byzantine Empire crush Arduin's Lombard revolt? Or will the treachery that stalks the lands favour the Normans?

    " This book makes me ashamed of my white race in the South in 1957, and brought me to tears. The unspeakable horrors the author endured just to attend school angered me, and at the same time, it broke my heart. Everyone should read this book to understand just the tip of what it was like to be Black during the beginning of Integration in the South. "

    " I really liked this history about the Little Rock Nine. I just wish I could have found the full edition! I had to settle for the abridged--which at least didn't seem dumbed down; just shorter than the full-length. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 B | 2/16/2014

    " 370.19 B Excellent account of the battle to integrate Little Rock's Central High by one of the participants. "

    " The high school integration in Little Rock, AK was the beginning of a courageous civil rights movement that would pioneer the equality in education. To fathom what the first group of African Americans students had to go through is mindboggling. The author, Melba Beals is an old friend of mine who never told me about this episode in her life until much later. Her accounts are factual although I found myself wanting more information. After reading this book, I felt a lack of completeness in the story nor emotionally absorbed into the history of the times. I would only recommend this book, if you are interested in the Little Rock integration struggle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Rahi | 1/30/2014

    " This book is a remarkable, heroic tale about nine students who integrated into Little Rock Central High (in Arkansas). The author, Melba Pattillo, was one of those nine pupils. In the 1957 south, integration was still largely unheard of. The torment and trials these young students faced invoke both shock and sympathy in readers. Highly recommended! "

    " This book is about author herself as the one of the first nine African-American students went to an all-white high school. "

    " Wow! I grew up in Minnesota in the 70/80's and was very romoved from these events, and that kind of racist thinking. I really felt for her- the pressure, the fear, the questions. Thank you to Melba for paving the way for others. A cross to bear for sure. "

    " this book is cool it tells about a young girl in the south facing racism because of intergration.i liked this book because its really exiting and sad.my favorite part was when the president brought the 101st army to escort and protect melba and her friends in a all white school. "
