2.0 out of 5 stars If you are not familiar with the period, beware of trusting the opinions in this book, 15 Aug 2014
This review is from: The Third Plantagenet: George, Duke of Clarence, Richard III's Brother (Hardcover)
Subject is well researched but so many assumptions. Author considers his own opinion to be fact - not unusual for an historian - but he completely fails to acknowledge that there may be the possibility of a different view. So convinced is he, in fact, that his pet theory of Edmund and Jasper Tudor being the illegitimate sons of Somerset is true, for any reference to any member of Tudor family he puts He is also obsessed with Clarence having been short of stature, based on one report by one chronicler who erroneously guessed that he was 9 years old when in fact he was 11. No other grouns for this at all.
Good points are some very interesting work on the Clarence tomb at Tewkesbury as well as thought-provoking psychological assessment of the impact of the various traumatic events in George's childhood on his adult personality.
