Wars of the Roses, The
The defeat of Richard III in battle in 1485 paved the way for the relative peace and prosperity of England under the Tudors and ended more than 30 years of violent and bitter civil strife. Plots, rebellions, murder, betrayal, fierce battles and scheming courtiers, the Wars of the Roses had torn fifteenth century England apart. The Wars of the Roses is a lively, highly illustrated account of the last kings of medieval England.
