The Plantagenets: The Warrior Kings and Queens Who Made England by Dan Jones

I love English history and have read scads of books, both fiction & non-fiction, about Henry II, Eleanor of Aquitaine, the Wars of the Roses and the Tudors, but I am a little shaky on the details of the reigns from King John through Richard II. Dan Jones to the rescue! This readable, detailed account of the 245 year Plantagenet dynasty filled in the gaps in my knowledge and supplied interesting facts about the reigns I thought I knew fairly well. Anyone with an interest in English royal and/or constitutional history will find this book fascinating. Plus, the cover is absolutely gorgeous–read, learn, and enjoy! (PS–Dan Jones is planning a second volume that will cover the years 1399-1485. Happiness on my face!)
