The battle of Stoke is very much a case in point. The sources, which Baldwin analyses in chapter ten ‘How do we know?’, do not proffer a great deal. What we can say though is that the battle appears to have lasted no more than an hour or so, and seems to have involved an uncomplicated sequence of moves. Of course this is not the first time this story has been told. In particular Michael Bennett published a full length study Lambert Simnel and the Battle of Stoke in 1987

In his 2007 book, The Lost Prince: The Survival of Richard of York, Baldwin discussed the possibility that the younger of the Princes in the Tower, Prince Richard, survived, and was the "Richard Plantagenet" who died in December 1550 at Eastwell in Kent. Richard had worked as a bricklayer at St. John's Abbey, Colchester, until 1539, but, unusually for someone of his class, could read Latin. He is sometimes said to have been an illegitimate son of King Richard II.Baldwin was the author of several books and contributed to a number of historical journals.

The Battle of Stoke, the last and most neglected armed clash of the Wars of the Roses, is one of history's great might-have-beens. The forces of the first Tudor king Henry VII confronted the rebel army of the pretender Lambert Simnel and his commander the Earl of Lincoln. Henry's victory over the Yorkists was decisive - it confirmed the crown to the House of Tudor for more than a century.

This study of the battle gives a insight into the opposing armies, their commanders, and the bloody dynastic politics of the period. David Baldwin is an author and historian. There is very little written on the Battle of Stoke, this last battle in the Internecine conflict known to us as The Wars of the Roses; the reason for this is not far to seek - there is really very little known about the battle and the battlefield itself never seems to have been properly excavated.
