The Hollow Crown

The Wars of the Roses and the Rise of the Tudors

Book - 2014
Rate this:
The fifteenth century experienced the longest and bloodiest series of civil wars in British history. The crown of England changed hands violently seven times as the great families of England fought to the death for power, majesty and the right to rule. Dan Jones completes his epic history of medieval England with a new book about the Wars of the Roses - and describes how the Plantagenets tore themselves apart and were finally replaced by the Tudors.



With vivid descriptions of the battle of Towton, where 28,000 men died in a single morning, to Bosworth, where the last Plantagenet king was hacked down, this is the real story behind Shakespeare's famous history plays.
