My Wars of the Roses Reading List

Actually, I have difficulty reading, so this is mostly audio books and some video.  And I’m frugal, so this is what I’ve found that’s free.

The Wars of the Roses were a series of dynastic wars for the throne of England. They were fought between iu_007supporters of two rival branches of the royal House of Plantagenet, the houses of Lancaster and York in several sporadic episodes between 1455 and 1487.  — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wars_of_the_Roses
