Overview
-

A groundbreaking new history of the English Civil War in Worcestershire which looks at the experience of local men who were recruited into the Royalist and Parliamentarian armies. The author gives a fascinating account of how the armies were raised, maintained and equipped, and he records how major events in the Civil War across England affected the county. In addition, he includes extensive and revealing extracts from contemporary documents. The result is an authentic inside view of the impact of the conflict on an English county, and this evidence reflects the Civil War experience of the country at large.
