The narrative and brass engravings were compelling but many disputed claims were not well substantiated or were portrayed as unuestionable fact The rumor that Richard III sought to marry Elizabeth of York for example has been widely discredited It is i would say well known that he had long been after Anne Neville Despite my misgivings I did like the studies of Hastings the Kingmaker John Morton Margaret Beaufort and the Earl of Oxford I didn t care for the information about Jane Shore s father and found it superfluous to the narrative One last criticism I have is that Seward downplayed the significance of the widespread dislike and mistrust of the Woodvilles when Edward IV died I think Richard III s coup had a lot to do with his hatred of the Woodvilles and especially his struggle against Rivers than ambition or ruthlessness alone One of them was bound to end up dead I would not consider myself a partisan for either Richard III or the Tudors but I am ske

I was drawn to this biography of the Wars of the Roses because of the five person focus though as it transpired what I found was another general rendition of what went on during the Wars with the usual players Edward IV Richard III Henrys VI VII etc taking centre stageTrouble is with the likes of Jane Shore very little info is available As a result the author refers to events featuring her father John Lambert to compensate Even so there s not a great deal of info on him eitherI was particularly interested in matters concerning John de Vere Earl of Oxford He was a huge asset to Henry Tudor and it s probable that the earl is the main reason why Henry became kingSo the title is a bit misleading Yes the five are referred to but the narrative does not revolve around them as implied Lack of historical records make this difficultThe author s style is engaging at times but not at others The section when Richard becomes king is the most appealingly w
