Overview
-

In the last few years there have been many studies of the New Model Army’s campaigns, its origins, its politics and even its political beliefs. However there has been no full-length study of the military aspects of the New Model Army since that by C H Firth in the last years of the 19th Century!

Using up to date research the author looks at the military aspects of England’s first standing Army. How it was organized, armed, uniformed and equipped; how it was drilled, organized and fought, what its flags looked like and who commanded it.

An invaluable guide for historians, reenactors and wargamers.

About The Author
-

The Author has been fascinated by early military flags for as long as he can remember and made his first notes on those of the English Civil War at the age of fifteen! This fascination has never faded and was only enhanced by a long association with re-enacting the period. Over the years he has written a number of short studies of particular colours as well as three short studies of the Colours of Foot. He is proud to live in London with his partner Mary as guests of the cats who allow them to share it.
