The battle of Bosworth effectively put an end to the dynastic struggle known as the Wars of the Roses.

Shakespeare was to immortalize the battle and Richard's death in Richard III, and the life and reign of the last Plantagenet have sparked centuries of debate.

Guiding the reader from the campaign's origins to its aftermath, and covering the commanders and forces of King Richard III and Henry Tudor, this is a complete treatment of one of the most important events in English history.

Christopher Gravett cuts through myth and propaganda as he clearly details the course of this pivotal campaign.
