Summary

Between 1347 and 1350, the Black Death killed at least one third of Europe’s population.

Philip Ziegler’s classic account traces the course of the virulent epidemic through Europe and its dramatic effect on the lives of those whom it afflicted. First published nearly forty years ago, it remains definitive.

‘The clarity and restraint on every page produce a most potent cumulative effect.’ Michael Foot
