The book explores the rise of the Tudors, and the tearing apart of the Plantagenet dynasty during the Wars of the Roses.

Dan is appearing on Wednesday, October 15, at St Peter’s Church, in Broad Street, at 7.30pm. The event is being hosted by Topping and Company, of Ely.

Dan said: “The 15th century experienced the longest and bloodiest series of civil wars in British history. The crown of England changed hands violently seven times as the great families of England fought to the death for power, majesty and the right to rule.

“With vivid descriptions of the battle of Towton, where 28,000 men died in a single morning, to Bosworth, where the last Plantagenet king was hacked down, this is the real story behind Shakespeare’s famous history plays.”
