Marston Moor 1644 by John Tincey

Book Description

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. Prince Rupert proposed a bold plan to relieve York. He succeeded beyond all measure and entered York. Rupert then decided to march out to attack his enemies. After a desperately hard-fought battle the Royalist army broke. The loss of the North had decisively tilted the balance of military power in favour of Parliament.

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.

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.
