  • Fatal Colours. Towton.

    I don't often make recommendations for books but I have to for this one. It puts this nearly forgotten battle firmly in context and manages to explain the lead up to it in quite a clear fashion, so if like me you always confuse your Yorks with your Lancs it actually makes it almost sort of clear why the flower of English youth spent Palm Sunday 1461 hacking each other to bits in a hill side meadow.

      He has come up with a plausible theory that explains why it could well have been exactly that, the bloodiest battle on English soil. I wont tell you because it might spoil the book but trust me well worth getting.
