Summary
From the New York Times bestselling author of The Plantagenets and a top authority on the historical events that inspired Game of Thrones, a vivid, blood-soaked account of one of the most famous rebellions in history-the first mass uprising by the people of England against their feudal masters In the summer of 1381, ravaged by poverty and oppressed by taxes, the people of England rose up and demanded that their voices be heard. A ragtag army, led by the mysterious Wat Tyler and the visionary preacher John Ball, rose up against the fourteen-year-old Richard II and his most powerful lords and knights, who risked their property and their lives in a desperate battle to save the English crown. Dan Jones brings this incendiary moment to life and captures both the idealism and brutality of that fateful summer, when a brave group of men and women dared to challenge their overlords, demand that they be treated equally, and fight for freedom. Praise for Summer of Blood: "Hot, brave and reeking with gore."-The Times (London) "Sound scholarship and sexy writing make this...'ssential reading."-The Independent (London), Book of the Year Praise for The Plantagenets: "A real life Game of Thrones, as dramatic and blood-soaked as any work of fantasy...'ast-paced and accessible, The Plantagenets is old-fashioned storytelling and will be particularly appreciated by those who like their history red in tooth and claw."-The Wall Street Journal From the Trade Paperback edition
