Format: Hardcover
Moorhouse's book is an excellent in-depth exploration of the events of October 1536 that culminated in a serious challenge to Henry's reforms of the Church and, indeed, to his control over the North of the country in general. In particular my perspective on Robert Aske, a key figure in the rising, was changed by the book; Moorhouse provides a strong argument for considering him a liberal thinker perhaps slightly ahead of his time.

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By John Hopper TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 April 2007
Format: Paperback
An interesting and impartial account of the rebellion in favour of the old religion against Henry VIII - though in fact the target was really Thomas Cromwell. The book didn't totally succeed for me - the prose was a little dry and a bit hardgoing in places, though the author's research is certainly thorough. One probably more for those already immersed in Tudor history, rather than for a more general reader who is more likely to take to an Alison Weir-type approach.

This is the clearest account I have read on the rebellion in Lincolnshire, then Yorkshire against Henry VIII. The author who is very obviously familar with the places involved also has great insight into how they regarded the King's policies. To the local people, Henry VIII was robbing them and destroying their main source of employment, education, hospitals, care homes, etc.

This was a fascinating account of this rebellion against a duplicitous, greedy, revengeful and thoroughly nasty and despotic ruler. He must be the most objectionable and disastrous monarch so far, closely followed by his greedy father.
The history is well written and researched and presents a sound and judicious account-it is a great pity that it did not succeed-had it done so the worst excesses of his actions and those of Thomas Cromwell would have been avoided.
Well worth reading.
