'An astonishingly complete account of this most significant battle in the Wars of the Roses.
Impeccable research, clear, concise and fascinating maps, and a narrative that persuades you you're an onlooker at the very time these astounding events took place, this is as complete a history of an English medieval battle as I have ever read.
Staggering.' Books Monthly 'Towton is a masterful account of a subject which had been much written about over the years - John Sadler sets his book apart from the rest by bringing his own background research and imagination into play...[He brings] a battle which took place over 500 years ago vividly back to life.' Suite101.com 'Mr Sadler has achieved what he set out to do and has produced a readable and understandable account of the battle of Towton and the events leading up to it, especially for those less familiar with the subject.
