Richard and John by Frank McLynn
Book DescriptionLegend and lore surround the history of kings Richard and John, from the ballads of Robin Hood and the novels of Sir Walter Scott to Hollywood movies. Frank McLynn has returned to the original sources to discover what Richard and John, the warring sons of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, were really like, and how their history measures up to the old legends. "With narrative panache and anecdotal detail" (The Independent), McLynn explores the truth behind the early folklore tradition, confirming that "Richard was everything you'd hoped for, and his brother John was the toad you'd always suspected." This is history at its best--a story well-told, thoroughly researched, unexpectedly revealing, and "a rattling good read" (Spectator).

Genghis Khan, Paperback (September 2016)
Combining fast-paced accounts of battles with rich cultural background and the latest scholarship, Frank McLynn brings vividly to life the strange world of the Mongols and Genghis Khan's rise from boyhood outcast to world conqueror. McLynn provides the most accurate and absorbing account yet of one of the most powerful men ever to have ever lived.
Bonnie Prince Charlie, Paperback (November 2015)
Shows the man Charles Edward Stuart who became known to legend as Bonnie Prince Charlie and whose unsuccessful challenge to the Hanoverian throne was followed by the crushing defeat at Culloden in 1746. The author argues that failure was far from inevitable and history in 1745 came close to taking quite a different turn.
Crime and Punishment in Eighteenth Century England, Paperback (November 2014)
McLynn provides the first comprehensive view of crime and its consequences in the eighteenth century: why was England notorious for violence? Why did the death penalty prove no deterrent? Was it a crude means of redistributing wealth?
