Blenheim 1704 by John Tincey

Book Description

In 1701, the nations resisting Louis XIV's attempts to secure the throne of Spain had formed a Grand Alliance. Yet by late 1703, despite some successes, the overall outlook was unfavourable. Marlborough and Eugene of Savoy developed a plan to change this and knock Bavaria out of the war. On 13 August 1704 at Blenheim, Marlborough and Eugene attacked the Franco-Bavarian army. Marlborough captured Marshal Tallard, 40 generals, 1,150 officers, 13,000 soldiers, 60 cannon, 300 colours and the French camp, hence destroying the myth of French invincibility. This book demonstrates how this success came about, with illustrated analyses of this major campaign, focusing on battle strategies, tactics and conclusions.

Marston Moor 1644 by John Tincey Marston Moor 1644, Paperback (March 2003)

This work shows that the entry into the English Civil War of the Scots on the side of Parliament radically changed the balance of power in the North of England. The Royalists were forced onto the defensive and the Marquis of Newcastle found his army besieged in York.

Ironsides by John Tincey Ironsides, Paperback (March 2002)

This title presents a view of the Ironside as a warrior who evolved from the experiments of the 16th and early 17th centuries to combine firepower with the armoured cavalryman. It reflects his wider service in the Royalist as well as the Parliamentarian armies and beyond the civil wars.

Edgehill 1642 by John Tincey Edgehill 1642, Paperback (February 2001)

The bloody tale of Edgehill; the story of the first major clash of arms in the English Civil War, focusing on figures such as King Charles I, Prince Rupert, the Earl of Essex and Oliver Cromwell. The battle of Edgehill did not prove as decisive as anticipated resulting in a prolonged war.
