In this riveting follow-up to The Plantagenets, Dan Jones describes how the longest-reigning British royal family tore itself apart in a brutal blood feud and succumbed to the unlikely Tudors. Treachery and intrigue ruled the land. Some of the great heroes and villains of history were thrown together in these turbulent timesfrom Henry V, whose victory at Agincourt and prudent rule marked the high point of the medieval monarchy, to Richard III, who murdered his own nephews in a desperate bid to secure his stolen crown. A long-overdue corrective to Tudor propaganda, this masterful and compulsively readable narrative dismantles the Tudors’ self-serving account of what they called the Wars of the Roses.
