Descripción del producto

In the 15th century, medieval England was torn apart by a titanic power struggle between two great rival families the House of Lancaster and The House of York. The prize for the victor would be the throne of England. The war raged across the land from 1455 to 1485, with Henry Tudor of the House of Lancaster finally crushing the forces of York and killing their leader Richard III on the field of battle at Bosworth. Over 2 hours long, The Wars Of The Roses tells the whole fascinating story of the epic conflict by using full scale reconstructions and recreations. Graphic animation clearly explains the movements and tactical intentions of each army; while narrated eyewitness accounts from soldiers, statesman, courtiers and scribes add a vivid insight from those who were there. Respected historians and scholars provide expert analysis and especially shot footage of the battlefields as they are today completes the most ambitious film history of this conflict ever produced. Main Chapters:- Kings, Nobles and France, Absence of a leader, Rebellion, First Battle St Albans, Bloreheath & Ludford Bridge, Sandal Castle, Mortimer s Cross & Towton, No Quarter Promised, Polt Against the King, Richard III, Henry Tudor, Bonus footage: Towton Graves forensic analysis of the skeletons from the recently discovered mass graves. Narrated by Mike Cooper, who regularly works with the BBC World Service, The History Channel and The National Geographic Channel Towton today June 2011 The Batte of Towton rarely gets a mention and yet new evidence is coming to the conclusion that this was Britain s Bloodiest Battle. Nearly 30,000 Englishmen died on this one day. This year marks the 550th anniversary of the engagement, which had between 50,000 and 80,000 soldiers taking part in the Palm Sunday (29th March 1461) battle. With experts beginning work in June 2011, they could unearth Britain s biggest mass graves and re-write history. As we know, it is the winners that write history and with Towton being a Yorkist victory, it is no surprise there is little record of it.

I recommend this program to someone who is already somewhat familiar with the Wars of the Roses and would like to learn more. (Examples of why it would be confusing to a newcomer to the material: Due to some strange editing, when they first mention the Earl of March they don't bother to state that the Earl of March is Edward Plantagenet, son of Richard, Duke of York, that same Edward who will go on to become Edward IV. They also don't mention Anne Neville, who goes on to become Queen of England during Richard III's reign, but they do refer to Isabella Neville, her sister, as the Earl of Warwick's "other daughter" so apparently Anne was mentioned and edited out.) The first half of the DVD is the most interesting. I learned quite a bit about the family rivalry between the Percies and the Nevilles and how that helped to that lead to the start of the Wars of the Roses, and the fact that through their skirmishes the "war" had actually started before it became a struggle for the crown. This is information you don't often get in programs about the Wars of the Roses. I liked that they emphasized Queen Margaret's aggressive involvement in the machinations of government at the time, rather than minimizing her role as is often done to female historical figures. I also appreciated their not reducing Henry VI to the stereotypical crazy, sweet saint, and were willing to discuss his personal flaws as well as his virtues.

As the program progresses, the quality goes downhill a bit. It was inexplicably biased toward the Yorks and against the Lancastrians, in that they mention the atrocities committed by Lancastrian forces and not the York forces. Another big flaw is the short shrift they give to Richard III. His role in the Wars as a young man is barely mentioned, and his loyalty to his brother (such a fascinating contrast with his later seizure of the throne) not mentioned at all, and the brief account of his reign is solidly in the "Richard killed the Princes" camp without giving the viewer any notion of Richard being the contradictory, complex person he was. Not that I am saying they should have taken the Ricardian point of view; but to portray such a famous king as something other than two-dimensional would have made for a more interesting piece of historical storytelling. (This in contrast with their more successful and nuanced discussion of Henry VI.) I also wasn't too impressed with their dismissal of Richard's brother George, Duke of Clarence as "stupid", an awfully simplistic conclusion considering that a chronicler praised both George and Richard as having been brilliant, intellectual able young men.

If you're interested in details of the battles and in tutorials regarding fighting techniques of this period, you will enjoy this DVD; I skipped through most of this material, but I was intrigued by the forensic evidence they provided of the exceptional brutality of the Battle of Townton, presenting evidence by way of trashed skulls, how the blows struck went beyond what was necessary to end life.

To sum up, I recommend this DVD for its excellent background on the early phases of the Wars of the Roses.

Strictly on an informational front, this is a worthwhile documentary to learn about the Wars of the Roses. There are several historians who explain the intricate details of the wars in a very easy to understand way. You also get to watch two guys dressed in suits of armor demonstrating medieval weapons and war technique, which I found quite interesting. The only thing that drove me crazy about this documentary was the black and white "war" footage. Clearly the filmmakers were going for the whole "you are there" experience, trying to make the battle scenes look like actual footage from the Wars of the Roses! Instead, the grainy, blurry scenes were just annoying and distracting to me. It would have been so much better if the re-enactments were in the style of the History Channel...in full-color and easy to see the action. It is still worth watching though.

New archaeological evidence, and extensive historical research, are featured in this thoughtful examination of the series of battles that consist of the Wars of the Roses. The specials on weaponry, combat techniques, forensics, and the archeological site of Bosworth Field are all well worth watching. You may want to turn on the subtitles; at times, the music overwhelms the narrative. The role of "The Kingmaker," Richard de Neville, Earl of Warwick, is explored: this powerful force of the House of York was centered at his Warwick Castle, pitted against the House of Lancaster and the weak Henry VI. After the devastating Battle of Wakefield (December 1460) Neville's father, the Earl of Salisbury, was killed, beheaded at the direction of Queen Margaret (while Henry VI was having another bout of mental issues). The Earl's son (and Kingmaker's brother) Sir Thomas Neville was killed in battle. Queen Margaret kept the Plantagenet rivalries going, family feuds gone viral; all were related to one another. Richard's brother, John Neville, 1st Marquess of Montagu, was later killed at another decisive Roses clash, the Battle of Barnett, April 1471; the family lines continued despite all this. No one mentions that one of the The Kingmaker's daughters was Queen Anne (married to Richard III), while her sister Isabel married a great-grandson of Edward III's, George Plantagenet, the Duke of Clarence.

It would have been interesting if the backstory had examined how the powerful Plantagenet, Neville, and Percy (Duke of Buckingham, later Earl of Northumberland), and Beaufort families were all interrelated, with Scottish, Saxon, and various other lineages. This only makes the Wars of the Roses more perplexing. It isn't mentioned that Richard Neville, Earl of Salisbury, was the grandson of John of Gaunt, a son of Edward the III, King of England. Another of John of Gaunt's daughters was the grandmother of King Henry the VIII. I know those who, oddly enough, happen to be directly descended from pivotal figures involved in the Wars of the Roses; it's a long story from these conflicts to those who became American colonists who fought in the Revolutionary War. Anyway, if you enjoy studying history, I highly recommend this excellent, well-researched, and entertaining film.

They tended to leave out some major points on several levels, One, that Edward's being illegitimate and a bigamist dogged his entire reign, and one of the reasons Richard was able to claim the crown. That promoting those reasons, and claiming Elizabeth Woodville was a witch, is why George, Duke of Clarence, was executed. In fact, recently, documents surfaced that proved that Edward most likely was illegitimate and not entitled to reign, Second, the HUGE role Margret Beaufort played behind the scenes, scheming. Third, the fact the Duke of Buckingham might very well have been the one to murder the Princes in the Tower, as it wasn't long after they disappeared, he raised a rebellion against Richard and as Marshall, had access to the Tower. Third, that if Elizabeth Woodville thought Richard murdered her sons, why did she allow her princesses to return to court under the guardianship of Richard, and she did so willingly. Fourth, that many of the Northern Lords turned from Richard after his wife, Anne Neville, died and he was rumored to want to marry Princess Elizabeth - Edward's daughter and his own niece. So, at best, this documentary left a huge portion of the political climate and intrigue unexplored.

The War of the Roses is a period of England history that I heard about, but had not really got a chance to look into and this film does that. Very informative documentary, but a little confusing at times I had trouble keeping up with who was on what side. Good walk through of the maze of English politics even thought I did not understand some of it. The special bonus features on weaponry, combat techniques and the archeological site of Bosworth Field are well worth watching. Overall, I recommend you purchase this film for educational and informative benefit.
