I have lived some of the history but it was interesting to see an overview of the events that went on around me and before. An excellent read.

I thought that it was just about the battle but covers Richard III getting to the crown, the origins of the Tudors and the wars of the roses and beyond the battle of Bosworth. So a much bigger book than I thought (difficult to see on a Kindle!) but one that I am likely to read again.

I had not read a Robert Harris book for a long time. They are as good as I remembered and a cracking read.

Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars ... unpicks the complex beginnings of this war into an easily followable thread, 23 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Up to Max Hastings' usual standard and unpicks the complex beginnings of this war into an easily followable thread. Gripping descriptions of all the arenas of this war. I will read this book time and again.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting, gripping read, even if it is fiction, based loosely on fact. A common character pops up from his other books to tie them together.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Based loosely on fact, having read so much pure history reading details such as bullet damage and injury was a surprise. I will read this book many times I think.


Armageddon: The Battle for Germany 1944-45
Armageddon: The Battle for Germany 1944-45
Price: £1.19

4.0 out of 5 stars reads as good as any of Max Hastings other books, 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does not cover the complete conflict. The Normandy campaign and a few others get a few sentences as the author considers them well enough written about already. What it does cover, reads as good as any of Max Hastings other books, which are very good indeed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased it for "love rears it ugly head" and hoped the rest would be a similar style as I knew nothing of the band. They did not suit my musical tastes, not bad just not for me
