Dan Jones’ Plantagents—Skip It.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Dan Jones’ The Plantagenets was a disappointment for me. I started out really loving it and I wanted to love it. I am very interested in that period and thought that a new discussion/overview of the period would be interesting. Sadly, I found his research lacking and that he dismissed key points in the historical period he was covering without justifying his point of view.

I say skip it and go ahead and pick up Thomas Costain’s series on the family.
