Warwick the Kingmaker

Charles William Chadwick Oman

Book Overview: 

Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick (1428-1471), wealthy and powerful peer of England, was one of the leaders of the Wars of the Roses (1455-1487). He joined Richard, Duke of York in opposing the ineffectual and often incapacitated Lancastrian king, Henry VI. Falling out with York's son, King Edward IV, he switched sides and joined forces with Henry's exiled queen, Margaret of Anjou, but was killed at the Battle of Barnet. In this short biography, the British military historian, Charles Oman (1860-1946) brings to life a consummate medieval warrior, who was also a politician ahead of his time.

so good and interesting story

Following his masterful biography of Richard III, Paul Murray Kendall has given us this readable, and often eloquent portrait of Richard Neville, a man who dominated English politics during the middle of the fifteenth century. A man whom Kendall describes as being relegated to a famous oblivion—so w

This is a great read! Despite being a history buff and having read a number of previous books covering this period, I have struggled a bit with names and chronology (too many Richards etc). A biography seemed an unlikely solution but oh my this is quite superb. By putting everything into the context

Kendall delivers another of his quite excellent character portraits of the Wars of the Roses. This was a fairly even-handed treatment of a very colorful character, and therefore more in line with the author's biography of Louis XI than his decidedly partisan coloring of Richard III (not that I minde
