Edward IV and the Wars of the Roses

I'm reading this over the holidays as part of the background research for the Lion Rampant project. It's a very wargame friendly biography which focusses on the military side of Edward IV's rise to power, including the key battles of the Wars of the Roses that led to the Yorkist supremacy. It's very readable and contains some excellent period detail with regard to contemporary military organization, strategy and tactics. Good stuff, especially as I'm a bit of a Yorkist sympathizer!

  1. I seem to remember he was never defeated in battle... it wasn't to be, however!
    Ever played Kingmaker...? :)
