The Battle of Bosworth Field saw the victory of Henry Tudor and the defeat of Richard III, one of the most controversial figures in England's history and the arch-villain of one of Shakespeare's best-known plays. In telling the story of this landmark battle, Michael Jones eschews 'the nightmare' of Shakespeare's Bosworth and offers a radical reinterpretation of Richard's role, placing the much-maligned king in the context of his family, his ideals and his sense of honour.
