4.0 out of 5 stars A new angle, 4 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Days of Richard III (Hardcover)
This book was interesting for filling in some gaps about Richard's activities before his death, but most interesting of all was the discussion of the current state of play re DNA research into these last Plantagenets and their modern descendants. I did not think I would have found this section as interesting as it was. The discussion of the fate of Richard's tomb was illuminating and his theory that Henry Tudor built something more up-market in response to the Warbeck threat is an interesting one. Despite this I confess that, like strawberries, it left an unsatisfied feeling behind, something there should have been (like cream), but wasn't, and I can't put my finger on what it is! Nevertheless, essential reading for any Ricardian, and certainly not the sort of book which the anti-Richards can scream bias about!

Thanks for your review -as a pro-Ricardian this is one for the wish list. Does he put forward any suggestion about the princes? that might be the cream that's missing. Just a thought....
