July 1346. Ten men land on the beaches of Normandy. They call themselves the Essex Dogs: an unruly platoon of archers and men-at-arms led by a battle-scarred captain whose best days are behind him. The fight for the throne of the largest kingdom in Western Europe has begun. Heading ever deeper into enemy territory toward Crécy, this band of brothers knows they are off to fight a battle that will forge nations and shape the very fabric of human lives. But first they must survive a bloody war in which rules are abandoned and chivalry itself is slaughtered.

The crown of England changed hands five times over the course of the 15th century, as two branches of the Plantagenet dynasty fought to the death for the right to rule. In this follow-up to THE PLANTAGENETS, historian Dan Jones describes how the longest-reigning British royal family tore itself apart until it was finally replaced by the Tudors.
