Head of ZeusISBN:
England, 1454. A kingdom sliding into chaos. With the loss of Bordeaux (the last French territory held by the Plantagenets), the enfeebled Henry VI loses his mind. Disgruntled nobles back the regal claims of Richard, Duke of York, great-grandson of Edward III. Town and countryside teem with soldiers, redundant and bored. The stage is set for civil war. Battle Royal is the first part of a two-volume history, lavishly illustrated with maps, family trees and images, of the dynastic wars fought between the houses of Lancaster and York for the English throne from 1454 until 1487.
