Question from Analisa - Sources for Wars of the Roses and Bosworth battles

You all might remember a previous thread asking for suggestions for a battle for Analisa to cover in her Military History class project. Well, here's the follow-up:

I've decided on doing my report on the Battle of Bosworth Field and The Wars of the Roses. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for books, documentaries, or websites that I can use to write my report. Thanks so much!

I would recommend “Bosworth Field and the Wars of the Roses” by A L Rowse. It takes you right back to the root causes of the conflict, which you need to know in order to fully understand the Wars of the Roses. Rowse was an Oxford University academic but this book is very easy to follow and has maps, photos and family trees. My copy is a paperback in the Wordsworth Military Library series and you can pick it up very cheaply on Alibris, or even on eBay.
