Poul Anderson's High Crusade has become a classic that does not fade. Unfortunately, there was a farcical and very bad Hollywood version filmed (with some fine actors) that did not and can not come close to honoring the book, and what could without a George Lucas and a Star Wars budget to do the story justice? I heartily recommend the book. It was nice to see that the book impacted on these authors but I’d have rather gotten into the story first and read the appreciations later. Other than that a great book.

Several stories and books describing the aftermath of a total US victory in another world war, such as "Sam Hall" and its loose sequel "Three Worlds to Conquer" as well as "Shield", are scarcely less bleak than the above-mentioned depictions of a Soviet victory. In The High Crusade, aliens who land in medieval England in the expectation of an easy conquest find that they are not immune to swords and arrows.
In the year of grace 1345, as Sir Roger Baron de Tourneville is gathering an army to join King Edward III in the war against France, a most astonishing event occurs: a huge silver ship descends through the sky and lands in a pasture beside the little village of Ansby in northeastern Lincolnshire. The Wersgorix, whose scouting ship it is, are quite expert at taking over planets, and having determined from orbit that this one was suitable, they initiate standard world-conquering procedure.
