    1. Third volume in the series, which covers the period from the unlucky Richard II, successor to Edward III, through the dynastic civil wars between the Lancastrian and Yorkist factions of the Plantagenet family, to the final defeat of the Angevin line at Bosworth. The quality of the selected contemporary observations is very high, as are also the mini-essays on such topics as the Maid of Orléans, the Bohemian revolution, England’s increasing involvement in the affairs of Ireland, the rise of th [...]

    2. Amazing and gorgeous images but the history is DENSE. You have to be really passionate about this time period in European history to get through this. I did really enjoyed the more mundane chapters about what every day life was like in this time period, but I really could not get into the intense details of who captained what ground troops in which land war. I also never knew the origin of the "Wars of the Roses," so that was fascinating to learn.

    3. Re-read portions recently, particularly the early and late eras that comprised the War of the Roses. This book is well-written, and includes not only some description of the dynastic conflict but of the general history of the time, and important events and works of literature and art.

    4. I highly recommend this book as a highly readable overview of the Wars of the Roses. It has lots of information and illustrations covering this era. It is narrated by people who were "on the scene" and these narrations are interspersed with really interesting facts and stories.
