The Stronghold by Albrecht Behmel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Willam Thell of Uree, from the free valleys to the east of France (Switzerland). He refuses to pay a new tax that has been levied, and is made to shoot an apple from the top of his son's head. So the legend of William Tell and the apple begins, and the rebellion against the Empire that held sway over these lands.
An interesting fictional account of a time (1300) I knew nothing about.
A NetGalley Book.
