Life of Edward III,
This review is from: The Perfect King: The Life of Edward III, Father of the English Nation (Paperback)
This is a great biography of this king, who helped shape England's very identity.
The author dispassionatley assess Edward III's character and shows how he, like everyone, was neither perfect nor good. He strove to bring order to his kingdom after the chaos of his father's reign.
The book is well written and very informative. I feel it starts fairly slowly but the author cleverly brings the reader deeper into the book and by the end the reader has had a detailed and interesting read concerning this great English king.
