On August 22, 1485, at Bosworth Field, Richard III fell, the Wars of the Roses ended, and the Tudor dynasty began. The clash is so significant because it marks the break between medieval and modern; yet how much do we really know about this historical landmark? Michael K. Jones uses archival discoveries to show Richard III’s defeat was by no means inevitable and was achieved only through extraordinary chance. He relocates the battle away from the site recognized for more than five hundred years. With startling detail of Henry Tudor’s reliance on French mercenaries and a new account of the battle action, the author turns Shakespeare on its head, painting an entirely fresh picture of the dramatic life and death of Richard III, England’s most infamous monarch.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Most exciting. A remarkable tale. Extraordinary.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “A brilliant rethinking of Richard III, whose reign ended at the bloody Battle of Bosworth, the decisive fight in the Wars of the Roses. Anyone interested in military history will appreciate this vivid and well-written reconsideration of a major military encounter, while those with an interest in the English monarchy will value this new light cast on a notably dim figure.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “British historian Jones draws on the discovery of King Richard III’s bones and other archeological finds to provide new information on the Bosworth site in this update to his study of the battle that ended the Plantagenet dynasty in England. The result is a classic example of psycho-history.”
