Product description

Review

A brilliant study of the period. Rich in historical detail, yet passionately written, the smell of battle seems to linger on the page. (Yorkshire Post)

It is hard to imagine a historian more in command of his subject ... The result is history as compelling as any novel. (Independent)

This is a splendidly and vividly written book. (Evening Standard)

Synopsis

During the fifteenth century England was split in a bloody conflict between the Houses of York and Lancaster over who should claim the crown. The civil wars consumed the whole nation in a series of battles that eventually saw the Tudor dynasty take power. In "A Brief History of the Wars of the Roses", Desmond Seward tells the story of this complex and dangerous period of history through the lives of five men and women who experienced the conflict first hand. In a gripping narrative, the personal trials of the principal characters interweave with the major events and personalities of one of the most significant turning points in British history.
