The Battle of Towton/A. W. Boardman. Alan Sutton Publishing. Hardcover. First edition 1994. Out of print. Condition: As new. ISBN 0750907711

An illustrated study of the Battle of Towton in 1461 between the armies of York and Lancashire, which discusses what drove the armies to fight at Towton, and examines both the legends and the possible truth about a battle that represents such a grim episode in English history. It is a poignant thought that many of the alarmingly high number of men killed that day are still piled beneath the surface of the battlefield.
