The book also gave great insights into a younger Henry. Another period of his life that seems to be frequently overlooked.
It looks like a fascinating book and I look forward to reading it
I just wish the print was not so small
The pages look crowded and I believe it will be difficult to read
Content wonderful but edition not user friendly
I would recommend this tome for high school students or neophyte Tudor Anglophiles (who's only exposure to the times is a certain show on a movie channel that takes way too many liberties with history) who want a introductory text on the Great Harry. But if you are looking for books on the great king that serve up a full-course banquet; I would suggest such authors as Alison Weir, David Starkey, Retha Warnicke, Joanna Denney for starters.
