Border Fury provides a fascinating account of the period of Anglo-Scottish Border conflict from the Edwardian invasions of 1296 until the Union of the Crowns under James VI of Scotland, James I of England in 1603. It looks at developments in the art of war during the period, the key transition from medieval to renaissance warfare, the development of tactics, arms, armour and military logistics during the period. All the key personalities involved are profiled and the typology of each battle site is examined in detail with the author providing several new interpretations that differ radically from those that have previously been understood.

Known to posterity as Scottorum Malleus _ the Hammer of the Scots _ Edward I was one of medieval England's most formidable rulers. In this meticulously researched new history, David Santiuste offers a fresh interpretation of Edward's military career, with a particular focus on his Scottish wars. This is in part a study of personality: Edward was a remarkable man. His struggles with tenacious opponents _ including Robert the Bruce and William Wallace _ have become the stuff of legend. ??There is a clear and perceptive account of important military events, notably the Battle of Falkirk, but the narrative also encompasses the wider impact of Edward's campaigns. Edward attempted to mobilize resources _ including men, money and supplies _ on an unprecedented scale. His wars affected people at all levels of society, throughout the British Isles. ??David Santiuste builds up a vivid and convincing description of Edward's campaigns in Scotland, whilst also exploring the political background. Edward emerges as a man of great conviction, who sought to bend Scotland to his will, yet also, on occasion, as a surprisingly beleaguered figure. Edward is presented here as the central character in a turbulent world, as commander and king.

In this sweeping history, Trevor Royle details one of the bloodiest episodes in British history. The prize was the crown of England, and the players were the rival houses of Lancaster and York. The dynastic quarrel threatened the collapse of the monarchy as a succession of weak rulers failed to deal with an overzealous aristocracy, plunging England into a series of violent encounters. The bloody battles and political intrigue between the rival heirs of King Edward III brought forth one of the most dynamic ruling families of England--the Tudors.

There is no single history of the Wars of the Roses - the bloody conflict between supporters of the White Rose of Yorkshire and the Red Rose of Lancashire - which provides a military history while placing the conflict in the context of the political, cultural, religious and social background, not just in England and the rest of the British Isles but also in Europe. This book makes good that omission by producing the definitive account of one of the most dramatic and murderous periods in English history - the years when the rival heirs of King Edward III fought for the right to rule as absolute monarchs. It will also examine the wars and the main personalities against the account provided by William Shakespeare's cycle of historical plays. It paints the period on a broad canvas, refusing to be circumscribed by the narrow dates set down by earlier historians. Instead the story opens with the reign of Richard II and charts over a hundred years of dramatic internecine conflict, treachery and greed, a period in which powerful men perverted justice for their own ends, murdering their opponents and destroying their possessions in the process.
