Kett 1549, Rewriting the Rebellion
Leo Jary, £9.95, Bittern Books, 9781909796577
The author of this exciting new investigation into Kett’s Rebellion is a former writer/illustrator for the MOD and as such has a knowledgeable insight for his argument that the bias given by the victors has clouded the achievements of Kett and his followers and he also gives a new theory about the location of Dussindale where the uprising was crushed. Using the author’s own illustrations and maps this book will interest all who still honour Kett and the principles for which he and many others stood for and ultimately perished. This volume will create some interesting claims and counter claims from different perspectives. Read and make your own decision.
