Richard III PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Richard III free pdf Richard III ruled England for a mere twenty-six months, yet few English monarchs remain as compulsively fascinating, and none has been more persistently vilified. In his absorbing and universally praised account, Charles Ross assesses the king within the context of his violent age and explores the critical questions of the reign: why and how Richard Plantagenet usurped the throne- the belief that he ordered the murder of "the Princes in the Tower"- the events leading to the battle of Bosworth in 1485- and the death of the Yorkist dynasty with Richard himself. In a new foreword, Professor Richard A. Griffiths identifies the attributes that have made Ross's account the leading biography in the field, and assesses the impact of the research published since the book first appeared in 1981. "A fascinating study on a perennially fascinating topic...the base against which will be measured any future research."--Times Higher Education Supplement
