Anglo Danes Close Ups of Each Base (Unit Five)
This is all the more important with vignettes (to state the obvious):
In the case of the Anglo Danes I wanted to evoke the frantic crush of battle as portrayed in the Bayeux Tapestry. To conjure up the press, the desperation, the sheer brutality and belligerence as illustrated on that famous embroidery.
I hope that, in some small way I have managed to touch upon the press of battle as elucidated in the tapestry in some small way.
