Wars of the Roses Battles

This page will track refights of the battles from the Wars of the Roses. Before any of the refights can take place i'll need to paint some armies but to start there is a list of the battles, their size and main combatants. The details of each battle will be added as the refight is prepared with links to blog postings.

The details presented are under development and are being prepared as an aid to wargaming the period. The source for the details on this page is Philip A. Haigh's The Military Campaigns of the Wars of the Roses.
