Book Review:

One of the greatest stories in the history of man is the collapse of the Dark Ages: the deadened and superstitious medieval mind dragged into the light of the Renaissance, and the magnificent achievements that followed. William Manchester brings his extraordinary gift as historian and biographer recreating a picture of a world in its infancy.
