Simon de Montfort: The Fatal Hours
by Carmel Langridge and John Kyte
To coincide with the 750th anniversary of the Battle of Evesham, a new publication is available from Carmel Langridge and John Kyte.
The authors have set out to give the reader an idea of the main players involved with both the rebels (Simon de Montfort) and the Royalists (Prince Edward) These were the Barons and knights of the realm who were distinguished by the blazons or armorial arms that they bore.
This account describes the few hours before the battle and the hours following, and the factors which would have an influence on the outcome.
