3.0 out of 5 stars Henry VII Propaganda, 12 Jan. 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Richard III: The King in the Car Park (Hardcover)
This book does a better job than Shakespeare's play in smearing Richard's name and achievements. Whilst not denying Henry's achievements and that history would be a lot different without him as related in this book my own opinion is the many of Richard's so-called crimes are (in terms of the Scots type of verdict) "Non proven". Richard was a man of his times and his actions were largely governed by the need to survive in a "jungle" full of equally unscrupulous adveraries. An interesting read counterbalancing the recent promotion of the "Car Park King". The writing is very detailed and occasionally somewhat repetitive.

Absolutely agree with the above review. Shakespeare's depiction of the King was saintly compared to this offering. Has this author read anything about Richard printed after c1600?
