Slight wear; Dust Jacket slight wear. Crisp oversize hardcover.; "Even the title 'English Civil War' is a misnomer, for the conflict which ravage Britain in the mid-seventeenth century involved three distinct wars during the 1642-51 period, and involved Scotland, Wales and Ireland to a large degree. The English Civil Wars in fact represent the most vital watershed in British history, effectively extinguishing the vestiges of feudalism and originating the concepts of constitutional monarch and standing army. ... In addition to a detailed and chronological account of the campaigning, and insights into the characters of the military and political leaders, the book includes an important section on a subject frequently neglected: on how an army was formed, how its members were recruited (or impressed), how regiments were raised, trained and equipped, how an army was provisioned, marshalled in the field, how its infantry and cavalry were employed, how its artillery was managed, and ultimately how it fought, advanced or retreated." ; 160 pages.
