The New Model Army

£17.99

Product description

The New Model Army In England, Ireland And Scotland, 1645-1653.

This is an account of one of the most formidable fighting forces ever assembled. Taking his evidence from contemporary sources, Ian Gentles describes the formation of the New Model Army under Thomas Fairfax and Oliver Cromwell, the course of its decisive victories over the royalist forces of Charles I and its ferociously successful campaigns against the Scots and the Irish. The author gives a vivid account of the course of the major battles and of the innovative tactics employed by Fairfax and Cromwell. As importantly, he also examines the motivations and aspirations of the soldiers and their officers. For this was no ordinary army, but one convinced that it was acting under divine guidance, not merely to win a war, but to change the very nature of English society.

Paperback book in good condition; some shelf wear.
