Product Description

Product Description

Famous Men of the Middle Ages features attractive biographical sketches of thirty-five of the most prominent characters in the history of the Middle Ages, from the barbarian invasions to the invention of the printing press. Each story in this book by John Haaren is told in a clear, simple manner, and is well calculated to awaken and stimulate the youthful imagination. Notable characters featured in Famous Men of the Middle Ages include Attila the Hun, Charlemagne, William the Conqueror, Frederick Barbarossa, Marco Polo, and William Tell. Somewhat surprisingly, Famous Men of the Middle Ages also includes a chapter about one woman: Joan of Arc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting stuff Nov. 10 2011
By Jetpack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a review of the Kindle version, so no issues with the pages.

This starts with famous men (and Joan of Arc) of the 4th Century and moves forward in time. It's not a ton of info. on each, but certainly worth a read if you like a history.

Happily, the photos are reproduced, so that is quite useful.

Unfortunately, it needs a good editing, as there are a number of typos in this version,and the formatting needs a good cleaning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version needs serious proofread, but still interesting and understandable April 23 2012

Enjoyed the individual sections, but the paper format did not convert to ebook very well. Otherwise, well worth the time, and a good overview of the time period.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the same book as the print version Sept. 4 2013

I was thrilled to find this book for only $.99 on the Kindle when it appeared on our homeschool book reading list this year. But as I sat down to plan our readings, I was very disappointed to find that the Kindle version is NOT the same version as the print version.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good chronology of the famous and not so famous July 28 2012
By Theresa's Bookcase - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book starts off with a history of the pagan gods which is interesting as a prelude to the fall of the Roman Empire. The chapters are laid out in chronological order which helps understand where the people fall in history. Lots of tidbits about the spread of Christianity and other aspects of the period. I thought the author included a few too many kings of questionable fame and perhaps could have included some additional inventors, explorers, saints, and so forth in their place.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for historical studies Aug. 24 2012
By Alex - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well-illustrated book, published in the early twentieth century.
Written by good language. It will be interesting and useful for those who are beginning to study the Middle Ages.
Unfortunately, very poor quality scans, so that almost every page contains annoying typos.
