King John (The Yale English Monarchs Series)

"Superb and comprehensive look at Henry V. Impressive in length and knowledge."
Henry VI (The Yale English Monarchs Series)

Edward IV (The Yale English Monarchs Series)
Edward IV (The Yale English Monarchs Series)
"The best and most accessible look at Edward IV. Very detailed and the late C.D. Ross certainly understood Edward."
Richard III (The Yale English Monarchs Series)
Richard III (The Yale English Monarchs Series)
"C. D. Ross's dispassionate look at the infamous Richard III. Impartial and reasoned, even if surprisingly short for a king who has generated so much debate since his death."
Henry VII (The English Monarchs Series)
Henry VII (The English Monarchs Series)
"A good general study of Henry VII. More than a biography."
Henry VIII (The Yale English Monarchs Series)
Henry VIII (The Yale English Monarchs Series)
"The best biography on Henry VIII.  A must buy!"
James II (The Yale English Monarchs Series)

George I (The Yale English Monarchs Series)
George I (The Yale English Monarchs Series)
"A sympathetic look at George I who emerges as a decent ruler and man. Especially strong on the foreign affairs and diplomacy of the post-Utrecht period."

"A scholarly, highly readable study of Henry I."
William Rufus (The Yale English Monarchs Series)
