The Medieval Soldier : Men Who Fought the Wars of the Roses, Paperback / softback Book

The Medieval Soldier : Men Who Fought the Wars of the Roses Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


What did a Wars of the Roses battle look like and how was it fought once both sides resorted to all-out conflict?

How did soldiers feel about killing fellow Englishmen?

This study of the medieval soldier examines these and other questions using a variety of documentary sources.

Eyewitness accounts of the men who fought as captains, archers, artillerymen, billmen, men-at-arms and cavalry - both in England and abroad - are used to paint a picture of 15th-century conflict in all its confusion and violence.

Evidence gleaned from the recently discovered mass grave close to the battlefield at Towton in North Yorkshire sheds additional light on the kind of men who fought in the Wars of the Roses, and the text is supported by contemporary illustrations and diagrams.
