The English People at War in the Age of Henry VIII

Steven Gunn

  • Shortlisted for the Gilder Lehrman Prize
  • Places a new emphasis on Henry VIII's reign, by drawing attention to the frequency and scale of his wars
  • Draws on a wide range of sources—parish and borough account books, wills and memoirs, buildings and paintings, letters from Henry's captains, and the notes readers wrote in their printed history books
  • Sets Henry's reign in the context of English history and renaissance warfare
