Powerful storytelling and stylish dramatic reconstruction bring to life one of the most visceral and violent chapters in British history.
Acclaimed historian Dan Jones tells the story of the dynasty who ruled England and much of France during the Middle Ages. More shocking, brutal and exhilarating than Game of Thrones, these events actually happened.
In a striking new take on those turbulent times, Dan introduces a series of extraordinary characters driven by ambition, jealousy, hatred and revenge - overbearing fathers, weak sons, treacherous allies, adulterous wives, bad marriages, cousins at war and best friends turned mortal enemies. Their raw human emotions caused them to change history and shaped our nation.
Dan Jones is an award-winning journalist and an expert on the Middle Ages. His first book on the Peasants' Revolt received widespread critical acclaim and his second, The Plantagenets: The Kings Who Made England is a number one international bestseller. He recently published its sequel The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses and the Rise of the Tudors.
