10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Graham R. Hill VINE VOICE on 26 Mar. 2007
Format: Paperback
This book is a blend of historical context, description of the battle itself and and illustrated guide to walking the battlefield. It manages all this plus tips on local hotels and restaurants in only 160 pages. Like all battles during the Wars of the Roses the details - even down to where the fighting took place - are by no means certain. The author puts forward his view with conviction, but also finds space for an overview of four other versions complete with maps. I am not saying that I entirely agree with his theory of exactly what happened on Saturday May 4th 1471, but the book is of excellent value for anyone who is interested in the Battle of Tewkesbury

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Evans on 19 Feb. 2013
Format: Paperback
There's very little documentary evidence remaining about the battle and no archeological evidence, so where the battle was fought is conjecture. However having read the book a number of times and been on one of Steve's walks I think he put's together the most compelling argument for his description being correct.

Steve describes the very convoluted history leading up to the Wars of the Roses, the politics of the time including the involvement of the Duke of Burgundy and King of France.

The best (clearest, most detailed, most accurate) of several histories of the battle that I've read.
