THE CASTLE IN THE WARS OF THE ROSES
Castle battles and sieges during the Wars of the Roses, including the siege of Bamburgh Castle in 1464. Using a wide range of narrative, architectural, financial, and administrative sources, sheds new light on the functions of castles, demonstrating their importance as strategic and logistical centers, bases for marshaling troops, and as fortresses. Traces their use from the outbreak of civil war in the reign of Henry VI in the 1450s to the triumph of Henry VII some 30 years later.1 vol, 264 pgs 2023 UK, PEN & SWORD
