The Battles of Newbury : Crossroads of the English Civil War Paperback
In 1643 and again in 1644 the forces of King Charles I and Parliament clashed at Newbury in a bloody fight.
Each time the fate of the country hung in the balance.
Chris Scott retells the story of these two complex and exciting pitched battles and provides a fascinating guided tour of the surviving battlefields.
By skilful use of detailed maps and other illustrations, he sets out in a graphic and easily understood way the movements of the opposing armies and relates their actions to the Newbury landscape of the present day.
