  Further Reading

There are many books which deal with the Bosworth campaign but probably the best overview is provided by Griffiths & Thomas. Two of the books whose main theme is the battle itself also deal very effectively with the campaign, those by Bennett and by Jones. Another good short summary is by Goodman, who discusses the campaign and the battle in the wider context of both the events and, most importantly, military practice of the Wars of the Roses.
