In 1485 the Battle of Bosworth marked an epoch in the lives of two great houses: the house of York fell to the ground when Richard III died on the field of battle; and the house of Tudor rose from the massacre to reign for the next hundred years.
Michael Jones, co-author of The King's Grave: The Search for Richard III, rewrites this landmark event in English history.
He shifts our perspective of its heroes and villains and puts Richard firmly back into the context of his family and his times.
