4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderfully illustrated history of the Plantagenets, 1 Jan. 2012
This review is from: The Plantagenets: The Kings That Made Britain (Hardcover)
Derek Wilson has produced a wonderful history of the Plantagenet monarchy, from Henry II to Richard III.

To the Plantagenet novice like myself and to children the book offers a nice introduction. I read it immediately after reading Susan Doran's 'The Tudor Chronicles 1485 to 1603' and immediately noticed Wilson's far superior writing to Doran's. Wilson's flowed very nicely from event to event while Doran's was rather clunky at times, in my opinion.

For those well-read in Plantagenet history, what is offered is nothing new, however. Being rather well-read in Yorkist history I did find the final part of the book from the Wars of the Roses to the death of Richard III a little rushed.

Furthermore, the book is filled with beautiful and clear illustrations; an inviting coffee table book if ever there was one.
