I sped read through this book His bias on Richard III is evident from the beginning and his evidence is bare He outright says he does not like Richard III and yet chose to write this book anyway so he does not portray him in a good light I was disappointed with the book overall Not really recommending this one to be read IF there was a current Tudor propagandist Seward would than fill those shoes uite a disappointing read

Richard III England's Black LegendArgued book suggests a refusal to face the facts of history Evenin the king’s lifetime there were rumors about his involvement in the murders of Henry VI and of his nephews the Princes in the Tower while his reign was considered by many to be a nightmare not least for the king. The copy I read was published in 1983 The copy here was 2014 so I'm assuming updated The 1983 version says that Richard's bones were throne into the river Soar during the Dissolution of the Monasteries I was reading this week that the researcher at Leicester University was so desperate for the bones under the car park to be Richard's he ignored certain facts Hm I wonder By the way it wasn't a car park but the playground of the school I attended in Leicester I played on the bones of Richard III There's much I like about this book It is well written and well researched for its age Seward explains very well how Henry VII had a claim to the throne Its weakness is its age We know much about Richard now than we did in 1983 I don't like the title either 'England's Black Legend' Before we open the first page we know that the author is not going to give a balanced view Rather like the UK Daily Mail writing a book about Jeremy CorbynNot one for those studying Richard particularly at GCSE
