Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 075245191X, Paperback)

Unlike castles and cathedrals, the battlefields situated around the UK are not easily found and require some background knowledge of the contender's tactics, the cause of the battle and its effect on history to be fully appreciated. At first sight, Bosworth is a piece of rural landscape, yet here a royal house was brought to an end and the Tudor age began. The object of this guidebook is to locate and describe the battlefields and to vividly depict the events of the day and the reasoning behind the fighting. Unlike the rest of Europe, Britain's battles were mainly inspired by internal conflict and here the authors demystify the politics behind the encounters and quarrels to reveal what happened at Britain's battle sites from the Saxons to the Jacobite Rebellions. An ideal handbook for the enthusiast or tourist alike, this illustrated guide offers a passport to history.
