The English translation of the Chanson de Roland, written by a Norman in 1066. It is written in a series of laisses -- bundles of verse averaging 14 lines in length. The story is based on the Battle of Roncevaux, which concluded the expedition made by Charlemagne in 778 into Spain to expel the Muslims. As he was returning to France through a pass in the Pyrenees, his baggage train and rear guard were ambushed and destroyed by Basques, who then scattered and disappeared. The poem's hero is Roland, and its theme is the confrontation of Christianity and Islam and Charlemagne's duty to defend Christendom against the Muslim infidel.

Charles Roland skillfully interweaves the story of battles and campaigns with accounts of the major political, diplomatic, social, and cultural events of the epoch and insightful sketches of the leading actors.

How were Union military leaders able to forge a more effective fighting force, a more comprehensive strategy than their opponents? Roland's thoughtful anwers and his recognition of the contadictions of human nature and the interpaly of intention and chance raise this book above a mere recounting of military events.

The true story of Roland and Rodney Paulson, identical twins, for whom the Skunk River Valley near, Ames, Iowa, served as a basic haven of security. Not close with their siblings, their school years were spent as "two against the world." As the Great Depression gave way to World War II, the Skunk Valley philosophy went with them into the Air Force. As members of the same crew on the B-17 FUBAR, they became possibly the only twins to get away with shared combat after the military's Sullivan Rule went into effect.
