"Lancaster and York: The Wars of the Roses"

Alison Weir has a new book that was released last August. The publisher states that "Alison Weir’s lucid and gripping account focuses on the human side of history, on the people and personalities involved in the conflict. At the centre of the book stands Henry VI, the pious king whose mental instability led to political chaos; Richard Plantagenet, Duke of York and Henry’s rival; and most important of all, Margaret of Anjou, Henry’s wife who took up arms in her husband’s cause and battled for many years in a violent man’s world."

For more on this book, visit the amazon page here.

 Weir also has another book about the Wars of the Roses, The Wars of the Roses, which I have read and enjoyed. I suppose this is a different approach. I am interested in reading it!
