Summary
Few English monarchs had to fight harder for the right to rule than King Edward IV - Shakespeare's glorious son of York. Cast in the true Plantagenet mould, over six foot tall, he was a naturally charismatic leader. Edward had the knack of seizing the initiative and winning battles and is free from the unflattering characterisations that plagued his brother, Richard III, having been portrayed as a good-looking and formidable military tactician. Described sometimes as reckless and profligate, all sources remark on his personal bravery. In the 11 years between 1460 and 1471 he fought five major battles in the Wars of the Roses. Three of them - Towton, Barnet and Tewkesbury - rank among the most decisive of the medieval period. This book covers Edward's family background, the Yorkist takeover and the drift to war
