DAN JONES    Book Number: 86323    Product format: Paperback

Sub-titled 'The Wars of The Roses and The Rise of The Tudors' here are battles, beheadings, clandestine marriages and flashes of chivalry. The 15th century experienced the longest and bloodiest series of civil wars in British history. The crown of England changed hands violently five times as the great families of England fought to the death for the right to rule. During these chaotic years efforts were made to maintain some semblance of peace and order - chivalry was reborn, the printing press arrived, and the Renaissance began to flourish. The popular historian Dan Jones explores 'The world of the War of the Roses with a near-novelistic degree of pace and intrigue, while always remaining scholarly and inciteful.' - Daily Express. We see a world in which piety and politics converged and where the outcome of war was seen as the manifestation of divine judgement. The text is teeming with memorably cold-bloodied characters who spring off the page like Henry V, Margaret of Anjou, and Perkin Warbeck. 21 illustrations and three maps including France and the Low Countries and Noble Landholdings In England and Wales. 434pp in paperback.
