4.0 out of 5 stars A primer, but an excellent one, July 20, 1999
The time frame covered by this book is enormous, but Prestwich deftly leaves few stones unturned. I would like to have seen a bit more on Edward II, but given the focus it is understandable why he was not fleshed out quite as well as the other "bookends". An excellent "primer" for the period before delving into more detailed works (like Preswich's own individual works in the Monarchs series).

5.0 out of 5 stars A well recognized history of the period, February 20, 2012
By

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The Three Edwards: War and State in England 1272-1377 (Paperback)
Prestwich's book has long been a standard, highly referenced, text for providing an overview of this particular time period in English history. It may not contain all the detail of individual books covering shorter periods of history (some of those writings can be very dry to read), but it contains sufficient material for most people having an interest in the period - for example, it covers the events associated with Mortimer's arrest and execution during the regency of the younger Edward III. The book is highly recommended. It has gone through various editions and printings, but history does not change (only the telling of it), and one edition is as good as another.
