Description
When Henry V died in 1422, England's great warrior king was succeeded by his infant son, Henry VI. Historian George Goodwin chronicles Henry VI's disastrous reign and the savage First War of the Roses, culminating at Towton on Palm Sunday 1461 with the victory of the Duke of York, who became King Edward IV. Variously described as the largest, longest, and bloodiest battle on English soil, Towton was fought with murderous intensity in atrocious conditions; there was, for the defeated Lancastrians, little chance of escape and none for surrender. Goodwin's cast includes a warrior queen, a ruthless king-making earl, and even a papal legate who excommunicates an entire army.

"The story has never been told so well or so excitingly.... George Goodwin rightly argues that while Towton can claim to be the biggest, longest and bloodiest English battle, what really marks it out is its brutality, its final casual indifference to the rules of war and humanity."BBC History Magazine
