Summary
15th-century England. Two royal families, the House of York and the House of Lancaster, fought a bitter, decades-long civil war for the English throne. The house of York came to dominate England. At its heart were three charismatic brothers: King Edward IV, and his two younger siblings George and Richard. The three became the figureheads of a spectacular ruling dynasty. Together, they looked invincible. Penn shows that with Edward's ascendancy the brothers began to turn on one another, unleashing a catastrophic chain of rebellion, vendetta, fratricide, usurpation, and regicide, finally coming to a brutal end at Bosworth Field in 1485. It is a rich and bloody tale as gripping as any historical fiction. -- adapted from jacket
