About this Product

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 and many sieges. 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 men who lived and fought in England over 350 years ago. 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 in one of the most 'active' regiments of the war.

Biographical Note

Peter Young was born in 1915. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in WWII, and saw extensive action with the Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire regiment. He saw post-war service in the Arab Legion, and in 1959 became a reader of military history at the Royal Military Academy. He published and edited numerous books on military history before his death in 1988. Michael Roffe is a talented illustrator of military subjects who has worked for Osprey for many years.
