Edgehill 1642 by John Tincey

Book Description

The battle of Edgehill was the first major clash of the English Civil Wars, and the general belief in 1642 was that the developing tension between King and Parliament would be resolved in a single battle. On 23 October 1642 the Royalist and Parliamentary Armies met at Edgehill. Much of the Parliamentary cavalry was driven off, but units under Sir William Balfour's command remained behind and, protected by the infantry, slammed into the Royalist infantry. The battle did not prove as decisive as anticipated, setting the stage was set for a prolonged and bloody civil war.

Blenheim 1704 by John Tincey Blenheim 1704, Paperback (July 2004)

In 1701, the nations resisting Louis XIV's attempts to secure the throne of Spain had formed a grand Alliance. Yet by late 1703 the overall outlook was unfavourable. Marlborough and Eugene of Savoy developed a plan and succeeded to change this and knock Bavaria out of the war. This volume demonstrates how this success came about.

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.
