Inhaltsangabe: In the wake of the rebellion of Owen Glyndwr the fear with which the English regarded the Welsh was reinforced with military occupation. In the ensuing Wars of the Roses the centre of gravity of the military situation was in Wales and the Marches: Ludlow was the seat of Richard, duke of York, and mid-Wales his favourite recruiting ground; at Ludford Bridge he suffered his first serious reverse and at Mortimer's Cross his son won his way to the throne as Edward IV. Further, Henry Tudor landed at Milford Haven and with a partly Welsh army defeated Richard at Bosworth. To understand the Wars of the Roses a clear view of the role played by Wales is essential. This superb survey, based largely on the words of contemporary chroniclers, poets and eye-witnesses, brings to life the warriors and bards of fifteenth-century Wales caught up in a conflict of immense political importance. Repeatedly referred to but long unavailable, this classic work has been completely reset and newly illustrated. With a valuable new introduction by R. A. Griffiths, it is an indispensable addition to the library of anyone with a serious interest in this dramatic period of British history.
Inhaltsangabe: A new edition of the 1915 classic, long unavailable. Evans' study focuses on "the struggle between Lancaster and York from the standpoint of Wales and the Marches". Use is made of Welsh poets as sources, and a chapter on their validity as evidence is included, as well as essays on the principal players in the wars and their connections with Wales and the Welsh.
