Insane kings, infant kings and imprisoned kings; feuding families, disputed successions and monarchs executing their own brothers; exiled nobles, war with France and bitter enemies uniting against a common foe--the history of the Wars of the Roses is so filled with drama that at times it can feel like fiction. So much so, in fact, that George R.R. Martin has cited the conflict as the inspiration behind Game of Thrones.

With its protagonists driven by ruthless ambition but twisted by their conflicting loyalties of blood and marriage, the Wars of the Roses (1455-87) saw England plunged into civil war for more than 30 years as the followers of the Lancastrian and Yorkist families fought each other for the crown.

From mad Henry VI captured in battle to the mysterious disappearance of the "Princes in the Tower" and on to the truth behind Richard III's alleged deformity, The Wars of the Roses is a lively account of the last English wars of the Middle Ages.

Illustrated with more than 180 color and black-and-white photographs, genealogies, artworks, and maps, The Wars of the Roses reveals the scheming and betrayal, the skullduggery and murder behind the struggle to gain power in late Medieval England--and then hold on to it.
