Share this book    
This is the classical epic, glorifying the heroism of Charlemagne in the 778 battle between the Franks and the Moors. Penned by an anonymous poet, it describes in detail the betrayal and slaughter of Charlemagne's army under Roland at Renceavaux and Charlemagne's bitter revenge. Nowhere in literature is the medieval code of chivalry more perfectly expressed than in his masterly and exciting poem!
