Written by society member and our current Chair Steve Goodchild . Steve’s gripping account of the fighting, and of the politics and intrigue that led to it, is the first to take fully into account the landscape of the West Country over which the opposing armies marched and the terrain on which they fought. It contains maps and diagrams of the of both Edwards and Margaret’s advance to Tewkesbury together with deployments on the day. It also looks at contrasting theories surrounding Somersets tactics and the aftermath of the battle itself
