I see this is a whole series. Is the whole thing about the war of the roses? Or does it cover other history too? I should probably just watch it right?
She covers Wars of the Roses, the Glorious Revolution (1688 ... getting rid of Catholic and Scottish monarch), the English Raj. If you like English history, this is the boss ... because it isn't patriotic bull shit. We have too much hagiography about Washington and Lincoln too. There is no true history, just victors writing bull shit. Yes, something did actually happen 100 years ago, but what it is, nobody is telling, and after awhile the last witnesses are dead. Dead men tell no tales, but historians do ;-) Now I love history, but I see it in the fiction section.
Part of my ancestry is British, so of course it is fascinating, because this wasn't covered in my American school. In the last 40 years, England has produced some of the very best academic historians ... who are women.
