In the beginning at least the invasion was terribly fierce. The Britons had recovered something of their former spirit, and by their resistance exasperated their Jute and Saxon enemies. Unfortunately those who should have been united in defending their homes against the common foe were perhaps even more lacking in con cert than the invaders themselves. Just as each of the German Chieftains acted for his private ends, so did those petty British princes give heed only to their own personal danger. The story of their defence against the Romans was repeated. They made heroic efforts; but their bravery was rendered unavailing by their heedlessness and selfishness. Not till they saw the Saxons gain point after point before their very eyes were they roused from their stolid indifference.
