The Death of Attila
NY: Knopf, hardcover 1973
In a TV chopjob on Attila the Hun, he was seen as white, handsome, doltish and riding a western saddle. In this novel, Attila is Asian, not handsome, shrewd, far-sighted, and all his men ride bareback. The actual hero is a Hun warrior who strikes up a fragile friendship with a German chief.
