On 22 August 1485, Richard III died and his army was routed at the Battle of Bosworth Field, leaving Henry Tudor to take the English throne. It is one of the defining moments of British history, yet knowledge of the battle itself is based on meagre sources. Published in 1985 on the 500th anniversary, Bennett's book uncovers the facts and provides a detailed and authoritative reconstruction of the battle and the events that led up to it.
