The Wars of the Roses was a complicated, bloody affair between the houses of Lancaster and York, and witnessed much changing of sides. That disjointed feuding persisted for a staggering thirty years and was a north versus south affair. However, the period and conflicts covered by this title are refreshingly clear. An intriguing tale of treachery and deceit.

I thoroughly enjoyed Philip Haigh’s book on the battles of Wakefield and Towton and I learnt a great deal about the battle of Ferrybridge, which is so often overlooked, but just as important. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about important events in England’s history.
