If further information is discovered about the Goths, this book will function as an armature on which to place what is new to us. Bradley does, as some of his compatriots and earlier historians, make the Gothic influence, the Teutonic/German cultures as superior and lucky is the nation which has it, even if ever so far distant.

I enjoyed this book. I was a bit disappointed that the tables and charts referenced in the book were not available with the Kindle edition, but overall I found the information interesting. I had some trouble keeping track of the summary of events at the beginning of the book. There were a lot of emperors who had encounters with the the "barbarians" on the other side of the Rhine. Once the author began with the Merovingians, the reading picked up and I was less lost. There were some interesting insights in this book which included how the Franks at one time encompassed a huge swath of territory including Gallo-Romans from Gaul and Teutons on both sides of the Rhine and the eventual breakup of the empire into Francia and the Holy Roman Empire due mostly to differences in language and culture.

Length: 197 pages.

I've read about the origins of France and Germany before, but this is a far more engaging approach than others have taken.

I found myself turning page after page and forgetting how late it was. Got very little sleep once I cracked upen this jewel.

What helped me most was his description of the first wave as being of the coastal dwelling stock, and the second wave as being comprised of their inland, forest dwelling cousins. Helps me understand the French vs the Germans.

Highly recommended.

I found this a very helpful text in filling in my knowledge of the period from about 500BCE until the end of the first millennium. A useful read for anyone who has an interest in the evolution of society and the integration and transition of cultures. The treatment of the history of the Franks along with other contemporary societies (e.g. Saxons, Britons, Normans, etc.) is very instructive if one can avoid the litany of assassinations and successions. More "readable" than others of this type.

This is, of course, an old narrative about the origins of the Franks and Charlemagne. It is written in a chatty, non-pedantic style which seems unprofessional by current standards. It seems to contain little in the way of serious original research; just a recapitulation of legend. I read it to the end to prove I could.

Not recommended for serious history seekers.

I enjoyed the breadth and depth to which th author went without turning the narrative into a bore. The interplay between the various characters, the intrigues of the Frankish queens, the military history, and the attention paid to the development of law, language and culture was quite enlightening.

The book was interesting, especially in an area in which I had very little background. I did get lost in the details occasionally, this was made worse by the writing style which was a bit crabbed.

I like history and this book had a lot of it in great detail I felt the level of detail was tedious at times and deep into war narratives, and family tree stuff. The kindle version I had was mixing the maps which would have Ben very helpful to have.
I was surprised that it was very interestingly written. So many of the history books I've read are dry and scholastic but The Fanks: from their Origin as a Confederacy is more like reading an historical story with human interest facts weaved into it. I was sorry when it ended.
