Desmond Seward is best known for three books: The Monks of War (1972), The Wars of the Roses (1995), and A Brief History of the Hundred Years War. He is one of a small group of historical writers who see narrative as an essential part of the historical process, looking back to Edward Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. The periods that interest him most are England in the Middle Ages, especially the fifteenth century, and France from the Hundred Years War until the late nineteenth.
