TRAVYS Posted December 31, 2012 Share Posted December 31, 2012 The importance of the Battle of Duskendale escaped me the first two times I read ASOS. [i'm slow.] Rereading it made it clear how far Roose Bolton's treachery went -- ordering Glover and Tallhart's forces into a trap. It comes as a complete surprise to Robb, but he never seems to hold it against Bolton.It's also interesting how early in the book the seeds of Robb's downfall are planted by Bolton, Frey, Lannister and by extension GRRM.I wonder, does Bolton's role in the battle ever come to light? I've read all 5 books, but I don't remember a character laying blame for the loss at Bolton's feet. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
