Soldiers of the English Civil War by John Tincey

Book Description

Osprey's examination of the British cavalry during the English Civil War (1642-1651). In March 1642, King Charles I, believing that Parliament had gone too far when it issued the Grand Remonstrace, moved to arrest John Pym and four other leaders. That summer Parliament, fearing military action, tried to seize control of the army by issuing orders for soldiers to report to Parliamentary, rather than royal, representatives. The King countered by ordering the bill ignored and raised his own army. Some turned out for the King, some for Parliament, and so the war started. This book examines how the cavalry soldiers of 1642 expected to fight the Civil Wars, and how experience changed their ideas.

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.

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.
