    FREE READ ↠ The Wars of the Roses The Wars of the RosesReader beware This is not a history of the Wars of the Roses Instead it is a selection of source material arranged in chronological order linked by introductions and short bridging pieces We get a description of Henry VI's character from a biography of him written by one of his clergymen He was like a second Job a man simple and upright altogether fearing the Lord God and departing from evil He was a simple man without any crook of craft or untruth as is plain to all With none did he deal craftily nor ever would say an untrue word to any but framed his speech always to speak truth p25 view spoiler some might say too simple for ruling over a kingdom awash with demobbed soldiers and military contractors owed money and sore from defeat in France hide spoiler

    FREE READ ↠ The Wars of the Roses The Wars of the RosesReview This book uotes a lot of primary sources from chroniclers like Croyland Vergil and Thomas More However it fails to really analyse what it's uoting it uses them to tell the story This means that you end up with a narrative that is disjointed as different chroniclers have different opinions and it sometimes feels very difficult to read and understand the narrative without the analysis of the sources uoted Nevertheless a very useful text for historiansGeneral Subjects History Plantagenets Wars of the Roses Henry VI Edward IV Edward V Richard III Henry VIIRecommend – YesRating 1520
