9781842122747: Phoenix: The Wars of the Roses: Peace & Conflict in the 15th Century

It was the period when the French beat the English and the English fought among themselves. Traditional historians have glossed over it, considering it the time that wrecked Britain's military greatness. But Gillingham elegantly separates myth from reality, arguing that, paradoxically, the wars actually proved how peaceful the country was. His gifted graphic description makes this exciting and dramatic throughout. "Incisively written and highly readable."--Sunday Times. "Gillingham informs us...with such verve, with and intelligence that we are left dazzled and delighted."--History.
