Warwick - The Man Behind The Wars of the Roses

By Tony Riches

Historical fiction, Action & adventure, Biography & memoir | Paperback, eBook


Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick, is the wealthiest noble in England. He becomes a warrior knight, bravely protecting the north against invasion by the Scots. A key figure in the Wars of the Roses, he fought in most of the defining battles. As Captain of Calais, he turns privateer, daring to take on the might of the Spanish fleet and becoming Admiral of England. The friend of kings, he is the sworn enemy of Queen Margaret of Anjou. Then, in an astonishing change of heart, why does he risk everything to fight for her cause? Writers from William Shakespeare to bestselling modern authors have tried to elucidate what type of man Richard Neville must have been... with quite different results. Sometimes Warwick is portrayed as the skilled political manipulator behind the throne, shaping events for his own advantage. Others describe him as the 'last of the barons', ruling his fiefdom like an uncrowned king. Whatever the reality, his story is one of adventure, power and influence at the heart of one of the most perilous eras in English history.
