The Wars of the Roses

By John Gillingham

Frequently remembered only as a period of military history which saw the French beat the English, and then the English fight amongst themselves, traditional historians have tended to regard The Wars of the Roses as an episode that wrecked England’s military greatness. John Gillingham posits that, paradoxically, the Wars of the Roses demonstrate how peaceful England in fact was. In this highly readable, incisively written history, Gillingham separates myth from reality.
