A pretty good and engaging overview of the 15th century English conflict between the houses of York and Lancaster. This one focuses on the people and less on the social/economic context. If you want to know who was doing what during the Wars of the Roses, and get an idea of their motivations and personalities, this is the perfect book for you.
