The dramatic and blood-soaked story of a tumultuous chapter in British historyfrom the New York Timesbestselling author of The Plantagenets
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.
Dan Jones is a bestselling, award-winning historian of the Middle Ages and the author of The Plantagenets: The Warrior Kings and Queens Who Made England. He has narrated and presented a number of dramatic documentaries on the Middle Ages, including Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty and Great British Castles, and the rights to Wars of the Roses have been optioned for a television serialization. He lives in London.
