A thorough account of Tudors, quite hard to read in places but gives an excellent and greatly detailed account which I found extremely useful.
Review: England Under the Tudors (Folio Society History of England #5)User Review - Goodreads
This text is definitely worth looking at from a historiographical point of view. However if used to gain insight into this period, many statements have to be taken with a grain of salt as his bias in relation to religion, politics, and misogyny, especially towards Elizabeth I is clearly evident.
