            <b >"This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous. My husband is planning 'an accident' in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for him to marry." -Letter written by Princess Diana, late 1996 It is a moment that remains frozen in... history. When the Mercedes carrying Diana, Princess of Wales, spun fatally out of control in the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris in August 1997, the world was shocked by what appeared to be a terrible accident. But two decades later, the circumstances surrounding what really happened that night-and, crucially, why it happened-remain mired in suspicion, controversy, and misinformation. Until now. Dylan Howardhas re-examined all of the evidence surrounding Diana's death-official documents, eyewitness testimony and Diana's own private journals-as well as amassing dozens of new interviews with investigators, witnesses, and those closest to the princess to ask one very simple question: Was the death of Princess Diana a tragedy...or treason? <i >Diana: Case Solvedhas uncovered in unprecedented detail just how much of a threat Diana became to the establishment. In these pages you will learn of the covert diaries and recordings she made, logging the Windsors' most intimate secrets and hidden scandals as a desperate kind of insurance policy. You will learn how the royals were not the only powerful enemies she made, as her ground-breaking campaigns against AIDS and landmines drew admiration from the public, but also enmity from powerful establishment figures including international arms dealers, the British and American governments, and the MI6 and the CIA. And, in a dramatic return to the Parisian streets where she met her fate, the two questions that have plagued investigators for over twenty years will finally be answered: Why was Diana being driven in a car previously written off as a death trap? And who was really behind the wheel of the mysterious white Fiat at the scene of the crash?

            King Henry VIIHenry VII was not destined to be the well-known (or perhaps better described as infamous) king that his son was after him, but his place in history remains important. With his victory over Richard III in 1485, Henry brought England out of the Middle Ages and ushered... it into the modern era. His reign ended decades of bloody civil wars and provided the wealth and stability necessary for commerce and art to thrive in England. When Henry's son, Henry VIII, ascended the throne in 1509, it marked England's first uncontested transfer of power in almost 90 years. This fact alone is a testament to Henry's achievements. Inside you will read about... Early Life and Exile The Battle for the Throne The Tudor Dynasty Begins England and Spain Join Forces The Work of Henry VII Late Life and Death And much more! In this book, we will discover the story of how Henry VII became the last English king to win his crown on the battlefield and by doing so established the Tudor dynasty which would remain in power for over 100 years.

            King Richard IIIRichard III has gone down in history as one of the most hated and vilified British monarchs of all time. His two-year-long reign as king of England ended in 1485 when he was defeated at the Battle of Bosworth by Henry Tudor, making him the last English king to die... on the battlefield. Despite the brevity of his reign, Richard III managed to earn an enduring-albeit unflattering-reputation which lives on to this day. William Shakespeare painted him as a ruthless, hunch-backed usurper, who killed not only his brother but also his two young nephews to get his hands on the crown. Amazingly, Shakespeare's claims are not completely unfounded. Inside you will read about... Richard of York and the Wars of the Roses Early Life as a Knight Lord of the North Richard's Rise to Power Buckingham's Rebellion Death at the Battle of Bosworth And much more! This book attempts to separate fact from fiction to present the true life story of one of Britain's most controversial kings: Richard III.
