 All the King's Armies
A Military History of the English Civil War 1642-1651
by Stuart Reid
On 23 September 1642 Prince Rupert's cavalry triumphed outside Worcester in the first major clash of th English Civil War. Almost exactly nine years later, on 3 September 1651, that war was won by Oliver Cromwell's famous Roundheads outside the same city and in part on the same ground. Prince Rupert, Cromwell, Alexander Leslie, and Sir Thomas Fairvax all play their parts in this fast-moving narrative. Aside from details of key battles, the book describes the technical and ecomonic factors which helped shape strategy and tactics, making this a truly comprehensive history. The book concludes with the war in Scotland.
