Osprey Men-at-Arms 14 : The English Civil War Armies

The year 1642 witnessed the outbreak of the first English Civil War, which saw Royalist troops loyal to King Charles fight the Parliamentarians in several major battles; Edgehill, Newbury, Naseby - and many sieges. This book covers the period from the start of the war up until the Restoration of Charles II in 1660. Peter Young explores the tactics, equipment and organisation of the armies of both sides, drawing a compelling picture of what it must have been like for the many men who fought and died in England 300 years before our time. Separate chapters on fighting, cavalry, infantry, artillery and discipline examine the subject in-depth, with many contemporary accounts, such as those of Royalist Captain, Richard Atkyns, who served under Princes Maurice in one of the most 'active' regiments of the war. This book includes photographs and illustrations throughout and also eight full page colour plates with extensive descriptions detailing the uniforms and banners of both armies. Text by Peter Young with illustrations by Michael Roffe.
