The Hollow Crown

Postby Marcus Woodhouse » Thu Aug 27, 2015 9:37 am

The Wars of the Roses and the Rise of the Tudors. Dan Jones. Faber & Faber 2014. ISBN 978-0-571-28807-6.
My Bosworth weekend reading material.
A natural follow up from The Plantagenets I found it well written but disappointing. Obviously aimed at those who have little knowledge of the period it offers nothing at all new nor does it sway from the traditional views of the events of the time.
There are much better popular histories of the Wars.
