    Although this book is marketed as being suitable for the OCR course I have found it indispensable for the AQA Depth Study 1450-99. The book is light on illustrations but it is clearly and thematically laid out and goes into the period in more far suitable depth than the wretched offering by Turvey for Hodder. For example, the period between 1455 and 1461 merits over twenty pages here of topic sections, sources and exercises while the Turvey book for Hodder knocks it all off in a couple of pages. I wish I had bought this book instead of the Turvey one. If there is a shortcoming it's that this book is quite plainly derived in large part from Christine Carpenter's seminal work on the Wars of the Roses and I have often had to turn to that to clarify a point which Fellows and Littler have so abbreviated it is no longer clear, so you do need to have other books to hand - this title isn't 100% enough on its own. But that is more of an occasional inconvenience than a major gripe. I would have found it impossible to teach the AQA course without this book because it is mostly in sufficient depth for what I need and I have used as the basis of constructing departmental presentations in lessons and, indeed, the whole scheme of work. If you have limited resources, this is the book to start with. If you can only afford one textbook, then buy this one. Sadly, I blew our money on the Turvey book before I'd realized how vastly better this one is (and the only reason I did realize is because a sample copy turned up at my school unexpectedly). If we ever get any more money I'll be buying this one in.

    I recently purchased this as a treat for myself, and read it while I was ill! This period of history is of enduring interest to me, and I found the judgements in this book to be mostly very sound. It is an excellent starting point for further reading.
