Warwick the Kingmaker by Charles William Chadwick Oman (1860 - 1946).

All audio files can be found on our catalog page: http://librivox.org/warwick-the-kingmaker-by-charles-william-chadwick-oman/

Richard Neville, 16th Earl of Warwick (1428-1471), wealthy and powerful peer of England, was one of the leaders of the Wars of the Roses (1455-1487). He joined Richard, Duke of York in opposing the ineffectual and often incapacitated Lancastrian king, Henry VI. Falling out with York's son, King Edward IV, he switched sides and joined forces with Henry's exiled queen, Margaret of Anjou, but was killed at the Battle of Barnet. In this short biography, the British military historian, Charles Oman (1860-1946) brings to life a consummate medieval warrior, who was also a politician ahead of his time. (Pamela Nagami)

    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Lilith, I have added you to the list of Proof Listeners. It looks as if you've already BC'd, so know how to access the MW. Let me know if you have problems.
If you haven't already, I'd recommend reading the tips in the wiki http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/ProofListening_tips_and_quiz Kathrine's quiz is relatively new, but several people have commented on how useful it is.
