G. A. Henty Book Reports

Peter Twitchell 3/23/09

Title: Wulf the Saxon

Author: G. A. Henty

What Type of Book: Historical Fiction


Setting: Saxon England in 1066

Main Character Names: Wulf, Edward the King of England, Walter Fitz-Urse, Harold the King of England (Successor of Edward), Ulred, Osgod, Tostig, Beorn, Duke William of Normandy, Guy, Gurth, Ulf, Harold of Norway, Edith, De Burg

Wulf is a kind hearted young thane (which is a equivalent of a French knight) that gains a bigger estate.

A quarrel between Wulf and Walter Fitz-Urse begins the story. Wulf gets to sent to his estate. Wulf rescues Harold of England from a scurvy count of Normandy by telling the Duke of Normandy William. The English fight the Normans at Hastings in 1066 and lose. Wulf gets a bigger estate and a wife from Normandy.


I learned that Harold had to give a oath to William that he could not keep.

I really liked the Battle of Hastings.

I didn’t like it when Harold gets thrown into prison by a Norman count.

I wonder why Harold went to the battle of Hastings with his brothers.

I would recommend this book because it is exciting History.
