I was introduced to, “The Song of Roland” by my son. As is frequently the story, another great book I never heard of during my poor public education experience.

“The Song of Roland” is the oldest known poem in the French language. It is the story of Charlemagne’s conquest in Saracen, Spain. Charles’ captain and fierce trusted companion in battle, is Roland.
