User Review  - Christina - Goodreads

Thomas B. Costain's second book in his Plantagenet series focuses on the life of Henry III and to a large extent Simon De Montfort. The first book runs through Henry II and his sons with solid details ... Read full review

The second book in Costain's series on the Plantagenet kings covers the 13th Century and the reign of Henry III. As he says in the book, Henry III was the son of probably the worst ever English king ... Read full review

User Review  - Bethany - Goodreads

Not quite as good as The Conquerors, but it's not the author's fault that Henry III wasn't the character his father and grandfather were. Still a wonderful story, I learned an awful lot about the 13th century. Read full review

User Review  - Kelly Elmore - Goodreads

Wow. Henry III was ridiculous, but his reign was worth it for the backdrop to Simon de Montfort. He is my new obsession, and I must visit the site where Evesham Abbey (his burial place) used to be ... Read full review

Yet another great job by Costain in his examination of medieval England, this one focusing on the 13th century and the long reign of Henry III. Just one more to go in this 4 book series. Read full review

User Review  - Jamison Shuck - Goodreads

Although not as good as The Conquering Family, Costain still presents a fascinating, page-turning history of the reign of Henry III. One complaint that I do have is with the title, throughout the book ... Read full review

User Review  - Rosemary Prawdzik - Goodreads

This is the 2nd book in this series and not nearly as fun to read as the first. Too many side treks and out of sequence segments for me. Mr Costain has a higher opinion of Edward I than I do certainly ... Read full review
