Leicestershire has been the scene of many important battles. It is perhaps best known for the Battle of Bosworth Field, at which Richard III was defeated in 1485, and for its role during the English Civil War, but there is much more to discover. In this book, local author Trevor Hickman uncovers the sites of battles that have taken place throughout history, as well as sites with a military background across the county. From Roman times to Civil War skirmishes and from the Vikings to Second World War airfields and gun emplacements, "Battlefields of Leicestershire" includes a wealth of historic illustrations: photographs, engravings, paintings and maps; and is sure to be an extremely useful source of information to locals and visitors alike.
