SUMMER OF BLOOD: England's First Revolution

DAN JONES    Book Number: 85834    Product format: Paperback

In the summer of 1381, ravaged by poverty and oppressed by taxes, the people of England rose up and demanded that their voices be heard. A ragtag army, led by the mysterious Wat Tyler and the visionary preacher John Ball, revolted against the fourteen-year-old Richard II and his most powerful lords and knights, who risked their property and their lives in a desperate battle to save the English crown. Covers Parliament, Lancaster, a call to arms, Blackheath, Mile End, the Tower, Smithfield, Norwich and more. Dan Jones brings this incendiary moment to life and captures both the idealism and brutality of that fateful summer, when a brave group of men and women dared to challenge their overlords, demand that they be treated equally, and fight for freedom. Paperback, 256 pages, 26 mainly colour illus. Maps. Remainder mark.
