Henry VIII


I know some you guys on here have read tons of books on the Tudors. Which is the best non-biased book on Henry VIII?

Cheers.

I've got The Last Days Of Henry VIII by Robert Hutchison, who also wrote Young Henry; the two volumes together cover virtually his whole life, although there might be a gap in the middle.

I can't actually recommend it because I haven't read it yet, but the reviews of both books are generally positive.

I appreciate thats not especially helpful, but at least it brings your question back to the top
