It Will All Be Over by Christmas

Issue 35

There are rumours abounding, spread by those who know the area well, that Senlac is key.

As Earl of Wessex, Harold is aware that the ground around Senlac is hilly and far from ideal for the cavalry that reports suggest make up much of the Norman forces.

If Harold can hold the Senlac ridge, the Norman forces will be bottled up in Hastings for the winter. With William finding it difficult to feed his army in the bad weather and prone to disease, the invasion will be finished before it has really started.

It will all be over by Christmas
