9780786720668: A Brief History of the Wars of the Roses

During the fifteenth century, England was split in a bloody conflict between the Houses of York and Lancaster over who should claim the crown. The civil wars consumed the whole nation in a series of battles that eventually saw the Tudor dynasty take power. The much admired historian Desmond Seward tells the story of this complex and dangerous period of history through the lives of five men and women who experienced the conflict first hand. In a gripping narrative the personal trials of the principal characters interweave with the major events and personalities of one of the most significant turning points in British history.

Review:

Between 1455 and 1485 the dynastic struggle in England between the houses of York and Lancaster, known as the Wars of the Roses, devastated the country and decimated the ranks of the nobility. Medievalist Desmond Seward examines the history through the biographies of five individuals. His choice of subjects mixes nobility and common soldier, and includes two extraordinary women. The result is a vividly human picture of a distant time and place. The text is supplemented with useful illustrations and background information.
