As a student of history, and English history in particular, I was eagerly awaiting this. After all, general histories of The War of The Roses, are ten a penny.
A book, such as this, focusing on a specific battle (Towton) was to be welcomed.
Unfortunately, expectation turned to crushing disappointment. It's not that it's badly researched, it's not (on the contrary, it's methodically researched) and it's not that the Author's passion doesn't shine though, it does.
The author seems to concerned with cramming as much information in as possible on the run to the battle, culminating in a stilted writing style, and not as much on the actual battle, as expected.
