THE WARS OF THE ROSES
336pp., 30 illus., P.B. 2017 reissue. The Wars of the Roses call to mind bloody battles, treachery and deceit, and a cast of characters known to us through fact and fiction. But the whole era also creates a level of bewilderment among even keen readers. John Ashdown-Hill gets right to the heart of this ‘thorny’ subject, dispelling the myths and bringing clarity to a topic often shrouded in confusion.
