Book Description

28 Sep 1989 Elite (Book 25)
Osprey's survey of British soldiers during the English Civil War (1642-1651) period. When civil war erupted in England in 1642, it quickly involved every level of society throughout the British Isles. On one side the King and his supporters fought for traditional government in Church and State. On the other, the supporters of Parliament sought radical changes in religion and economic policy, and a greater share of power at the national level. This is the first of two volumes in the Elite series exploring the recruitment, organisation, and tactics of the soldiers of the English Civil War. This book opens with an account of the origins of the military theory used by both sides, before discussing the weapons, logistics and management of the infantry throughout the Civil War campaign.

Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
By the 17th century the military achievements of the Classical world had long been admired by more modern European theorists who considered that with a good understanding of Classical writers such as Julius Frontinus or Claudius Aelianus the 'Art of War' could be revolutionised. Read the first page

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting though incomplete 1 Dec 2005
By J&K - Published on
This is a wonderful book detailing English Civil War infantry...a typical Osprey offering. Color plates are nice but far from thorough. Those looking for detailed regimental uniform histories will be disappointed - this is an overview and gives you the flavor of the era not the specifics. That being said it is interesting and a fascinating basic look at the period. The drawings for my taste fall below the typical Osprey standard but are adequate. Please note: campaigns, battles and detailed tactics are not covered - primarily a uniform guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource for Living History 23 Feb 2001
By Paul Willoughby - Published on
I own both this volume and volume 2 which covers English Civil War Cavalry. They are both part of the Osprey Men-At-Arms series. These books are not history books per say as they are not accounts of persons, places and events, but rather they detail the clothing, weapons and equipment of the Royalist and Parliamentarian infantry during the English Civil War as well as providing details on troop training, recruitment, and regimental and company structure. The illustrations are very detailed and by themselves are a wonderful resource especially for re-enactors.
