    The conflict that wracked England between 1455 and 1487, known as the Wars of the Roses, is generally seen as a dynastic struggle between the houses of York and Lancaster, which were finally united in the Tudors. Ashdown-Hill's study sets the record straight, dispelling myths and clarifying complex family relationships. Bringing to life a large cast of colourful characters, it underlines the precariousness of the Tudor claim and explains why the last Lancastrian was actually Philip II of Spain.
