Sailing under his banner were no fewer than five Icelandic skalds, the poet-historians of the Old Norse world. Two centuries later their accounts of the battle became the basis for one of the liveliest of the Icelandic sagas, with special emphasis on the doings of the Jómsvikings, the famed members of a warrior community that feared no one and dared all.

In Lee M. Hollanders faithful translation, all of the unknown twelfth-century authors narrative genius and flair for dramatic situation and pungent characterization is preserved.
