War of the Roses - Book Series In OrderThe British author Conn Iggulden is largely known for his historical fiction, along with his fiction and fantasy novels as well. Writing with a high degree of accuracy, he brings a high level of authenticity to his stories, researching his subjects well, bringing the past to life. This has seen him amass an audience from all across the world, with readers from far and wide discovering his work every day. With a background in English too, he has a handling of the craft quite unlike any other, knowing and understanding exactly what it is that his readers are looking for. Transporting them back to the past, he brings history to life, giving his readers a sense of what it was really like to live back then. It is also his characters that resonate too, as, whilst they may come from eras long in the past, he really manages to make them resonate with a modern audience. Mainly focusing on periods in history, he brings a level of detail to certain periods that give the eras a firm sense of grounding.
Conn Iggulden’s Wars of the Roses: RAVENSPUR
Wars of the Roses Series
It's up to his son to take the throne, but frail in body and mind, he is dependent on his supporters to run his kingdom. And as the threat from France grows, and rebellion on home soil spreads, his fears seem justified. Conn Iggulden writes clearly abiut the causes of the Wars of the Roses. The book is well paced, the description of Jack Cade's invasion of London, particularly the crossing of London Bridge could not be bettered The Wars of the Roses are definitely "now" and Conn Iggulden had hit the zeitgeist running with the first of his new series. It promises to be a long and exciting run up to Bosworth which I am happy to see This is a great historical novel, leaving the reader feeling immersed in the scenes and the time.

This is a very, very, eclectic and short list. There are more books on the Wars of the Roses than flies on a pile of poo. But these are the few that I have found to be the most helpful. To these below, I acknowledge my debt. But I have used them freely. I hate to be maudlin, but the pictures from ladybird books fired my imagination as a nipper, and many of them as as fresh in my minds as they ever were. Archers climbing over the wall in St Albans, for example.
