Being a rather minimal scholar of English history, I am looking for some information regarding the Wars of the Roses.
I was inspired to ask when a few days ago a box fell onto the floor as I opened a closet. It was an old English game called "Kingmaker" (presumably after the great noble Warwick). It is based on the dynastic struggle between the houses of York and Lancaster, famously known as the Wars of the Roses, which as everyone knows was won by Henry Tudor at Bosworth. Curiously, the casualties so great and Henry's claim so weak that Henry doesn't have a piece in the game (beyond being an Earl of Richmond) as do many of the pieces.
Bottom line, when I looked on Amazon for a book, many books were displayed. What is a real good unbiased (un-Tudorized) account that is reasonably comprehensive?
