The Battle of HastingsStreaming Video - 2007
October 14, 1066, was a day that saw the history of England and Europe change forever. This program describes the Battle of Hastings in its entirety: the position of Harold II's Anglo-Saxon army near a village that today is simply called "Battle," William of Normandy's surprise attack from Telham Hill, the cavalry charges and hand-to-hand fighting that steadily weakened Harold's troops, and the death of King Harold himself-shot through the eye with an arrow. In addition, Dr. David Chandler, military historian and former Head of War Studies at Sandhurst, discusses the strategy and tactics used by both sides.
