Bosworth 1485: The Battle that Transformed England by Michael K. Jones
History is one of my greatest passions, though I have to admit that, as an American citizen, I don’t have much of an interest in our English forebears, thanks to reading too many bad history books.
This is not one of them. Michael K. Jones should be commended for his work in rehabilitating the honor of Richard III, the last king of the House of York, who was made into a villain by Tudor interlopers and even William Shakespeare, whose play is about the only knowledge most people have of the honorable king.
John Batchelor does a two-part podcast interview with Jones, posted below. The book is available via Amazon.com.
