Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book gives a fascinating insight into this period of history. I found it a compelling read and would encourage everyone to buy it who has even a slight interest in British history. We hear a lot about how Scottish history is intertwined with English but not much is written about the involvement of Wales. This book also rectifies that. True we have recently had a TV series on the Tudors, but not from a Welsh perspective. To see this as a series from Rhys' perspective would be justified. Well done, Ms Fern for highlighting such an interesting account of our forgotten history.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By David Brown on 16 Oct. 2014
Format: Hardcover
As an Ancient Historian, it is refreshing and rewarding to read a compelling presentation of an integral period of Welsh and English history of the late 15th Century. Some people believe Welsh history holds no importance other than being downtrodden by that of English history. Where would England be without Wales? Most likely no place special. I pride myself on being a student of ALL history and recognise that Susan Fern's study of Rhys ap Thomas highlight's the life of a key historical figure in Welsh history.

I am not the most ardent follower of Tudor history, albeit, post Rhys ap Thomas but I defy anybody not to be captivated by the man that gave the Tudors their own place in history. Rhys ap Thomas, The Man Who Killed Richard III will give you an insight into what really happened at the Battle of Bosworth.

Format: Hardcover
Superb account of a little known story and of a little known man - outside Wales anyway. Susan Fern's passion for the historical figure at the heart of this story is obvious and the claims she makes for his place in history are amply justified in this text. The author elucidates Rhys ap Thomas's part in the great events at Bosworth and beyond in an account that is completely enthralling.

But this is so much more than a simple historical account as well. It's a portrait of a time, a study in idealism and of disillusionment too. A complete story in fact, told by a master storyteller as well as a fine historian.

Great to have a new pertspective on Rhys ap Thomas,highlighting the vital role of the welsh gentry in establishing the Tudors as a new dynasty.Ties in to the bedhead in the National Museum of Wales,a physical manifestation of the story,contemporary with post 1485.

Living within a stones throw of where Rhys ap Thomas was born found this book a most enjoyable and informative read. An insight to the area as it was in those days tells me that the war lords were not all that different to the war lords of Afghanistan today just some 500 years behind.
