On 4 May 1471 the forces of Lancaster under the Duke of Somerset and those of York under Edward IV clashed at Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire in one of the decisive battles of the Wars of the Roses.

Edward's overwhelming victory secured for him the throne of England and led to the near ruin of the Lancastrian cause. Steve Goodchild's gripping account of the fighting, and of the politics and intrigue that led to it, is the first to take fully into account the landscape of the West Country over which the opposing armies marched and the terrain on which they fought.

I thoroughly enjoyed Steven Goodchild’s book on the Battle of Tewkesbury. It is evident that the book is well researched and the amount of detail included about the events leading up to the battle, the battle itself and the political aftermath ties the book together well. I am enjoying Pen and Swords books on historical battles, and I think Godchild’s book on Tewkesbury is a fantastic addition – highly recommended.
