About this deal

Al final, por mucho que él opine otra cosa, realiza el trabajo de cualquier historiador: rastrear las fuentes para intentar hallar la verdad, o lo más cercano a ella, mediante un relato coherente. The one who had the innocent lamb sons of his brother, Edward IV, brutally done to death in the Tower. I hadn't ever totally believed the story about Richard getting his nephews killed ( I think I must be one of the few people who has never seen Shakespeare's malign play about him, either).

If you want to engage your mind and you’re willing to keep track of a large cast of historical characters and a great number of facts, you’ll like this. So with the help of his friends, he plays the true armchair detective, and by reading historical accounts, comes up with quite a fascinating look at the much hated king.The arguments she uses appear mostly based on flimsy evidence, much of it circumstantial, and some so thin that it would be throw out of court.

If you take the "players" in The War of the Roses, and place them in more modern times- one could almost compare them to The Mob fighting for control of their territory. A clever little book which causes me something of a dilemma – do I put it on the fiction shelf or that reserved for non fiction? She then spent years persuading a University of Leicester team to do the dig and a group of Ricardians—people convinced that Richard’s reputation has been unfairly maligned for centuries—to fund it.Nothing new to us, perhaps, but a particularly fresh approach in 1951, when history was often venerated as fact, rather than the saga of the winners. No dudo de la calidad histórica de la novela, pero me ha resultado tremendamente aburrida, hasta el punto del tedio. Wigram helped to reëstablish the group, now the Richard III Society, in its mission “to encourage and promote a more balanced view” of the King’s life and reputation.
