9781781591277: An Alternative History of Britain: The Wars of the Roses

Timothy Venning's exploration of the alternative paths that British history might easily have taken moves on to the Wars of the Roses. What if Richard of York had not given battle in vain? How would a victory for Warwick the Kingmaker at the Battle of Barnet changed the course of the struggle for power? What if the Princes had escaped from the tower or the Stanleys had not betrayed their king at Bosworth? These are just a few of the fascinating questions posed by this book.

As always, while necessarily speculative, Dr. Venning discusses all the scenarios within the benefit of a deep understanding of the major driving forces, tensions and trends that shaped British history. In so doing, he helps the reader to understand why things panned out as they did, as well as what might have been in this tumultuous period.

About the Author:

Dr Timothy Venning is a freelance researcher and author. Among his previous works are If Rome Hadn't Fallen (Pen & Sword, 2011), A Chronology of the Roman Empire (2010) and A Chronology of the Byzantine Empire (with Jonathan Harris, 2005). His fascination with the 'what ifs' of history was first kindled by a comic strip he read in Ranger while at primary school in the late '60s and has endured ever since.

Review:

In considering an alternative history, the author has explained how and why things turned out as they did. His arguments are involving and logical and they will greatly help readers in understanding the how and why of the actual history. What he cannot do, and neither can anyone else, is paint an accurate picture of an alternative England where Richard III had won the war and continued in a long reign. There simply are not enough reliable documents. Those enthusiasts who favour York will remain convinced that Richard was not the monster of Tudor propaganda and that he would have been a beneficial King, bringing success and prosperity to his people. Those who favour the Tudor pretender will firmly believe that Henry VII was a great king who liberated his people from a lengthy civil war and disposed of a blood-soaked tyrant. The truth may lay somewhere between and the following peace might have been very similar who ever had won the final battle. A fascinating review of the Wars of the Roses that is informative, enjoyable and entertaining. Firetrench Reviews
