Civil War in Yorkshire, The: Fairfax Versus Newcastle, Paperback / softback Book

Civil War in Yorkshire, The: Fairfax Versus Newcastle Paperback / softback


Between December 1642 and July 1644 two armies fought for control of Yorkshire.

One was commanded by Lord Fairfax, for Parliament, and the other by the Earl of Newcastle, for King Charles I.

Rearguard actions, sieges, skirmishes, retreats and large-scale setpiece battles punctuated the course of the Civil War in Yorkshire.

David Cooke's account of this bloody and disruptive phase in Yorkshire's history offers a graphic description of the actions themselves and takes the reader on a tour of the battlefields and other sites associated with the clashes of centuries ago.
