5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 3 July 2002
This review is from: Lancaster And York: The Wars of the Roses (Paperback)
Alison Weir's book is a masterpiece explaining the intricte detail surrounding the whole period with clarity rarely achieved in the many other texts on the subject.
Alison should be very happy with this text which brings the story to light. It is a vibrant and human account of the period and makes a topic interesting, rather like a good novel, an achievement given that other "historians" appear to miss the point focussing as they do on the battles and making it about as interesting and accessible as thesis on nuclear physics.
The book should be required reading for all school children and I wish it had been around when I did my A-level history. It would have saved much pain and reading of dull, badly written texts and actually brought a very exciting part of England's history to light.
