The final volume in A History of the Plantagenets covers the century from 1377 to 1485, when civil war ravaged England, rebellious peasants marched on London and wandering preachers sowed dissent in the credulous poor. The last Plantagenet monarchs governed in violence and confusion. Kings came and went, deposed or murdered. Princes and nobles slaughtered or were slaughtered in bloody battles or private feuds. It was an era of brilliant successes, tragic reverses, and wild extravagance.More

Last Plantagenets Review

Keep Going Back For More
Informative, Entertaining, Way Way Better than High School History Class
No particular Memorable Moment. The entire book was so well done that even though I have read the hard back book three times over the years, I HAD to have this audio book. I have had many positive experiences with David Case and the combination of his talent and the marvelous written history that turns famous names into real people was impossible for me to pass up. If you want to hear the experiences of real people and not just memorize dates and battle names, get this book. I think you will be glad you did even after listening to it multiple times as I plan to do.
Hard to define that. It is as though I was listening to a traveling story teller from centuries ago who has come to my town to tell us the latest news of the goings on of people in power.
No way. It is a long book and wonderful for listening to as I go to bed over several nights. Lovely way to drift off to sleep. Books lasts a long time because I can go back and re-listen to what I might have missed. Audio books are a blessing. This is book and narrator I know I will revisit several times knowing I am headed for a pleasurable journey.
