The best biography of Richard III that has been written. -- A. L. Rowse, Chicago Tribune
[A] definitive biography of Richard III. It is a noteworthy performance. -- Geoffrey Bruun, Saturday Review
From the Back Cover
I have tried to indicate clearly, either in the text or in the notes, what is fact and what is my own conjecture; and for conjectures of any importance I have given the reasons or evidence on which they are based. If the events of Richard's life and the general shape of his character had been previously established, I would probably have given freer rein to speculation. As it is, I have sought to hew him out of the facts, or as close an approach to the facts as I could make.

Having read, Paul Murray Kendall's book, "Louis XI: The Universal Spider," wherein the author rescues another maligned monarch of history, (Louis XI is known as the "universal spider" not because of anything sinister in his character, but rather because the postal system that he created for France wove the communications of the country together like a spider's web.), I was anxious to read this treatment of Richard III. I was not disappointed.
Kendall is the complete opposite. His work is an outstanding analysis of Richard III life, utilizing a strong variety of source documents and the historical record in his work.
It does take some time to read through but is well worth it - if you are serious about wanting to know what really occurred and who is much more likely to have done away with the Princes in the Tower and why it is extremely unlikely that Richard had anything to do with it.
I'm very happy I got the book and took the time to read it.
