One of the most dramatic periods in English history was that of the civil war fought throughout the country in the mid-seventeenth century.
The origins of the war and the course of the campaigns are here comprehensively but succinctly described by the late Maurice Ashley, a leading authority on seventeenth-century England, who based his narrative on the latest academic research and on the analysis of important battles by military experts.
Lavishly illustrated with contemporary paintings, engravings and broadsheets, together with maps which make clear the strategy and tactics, this is a book that should appeal to everyone who studies and enjoys English history.
