Book Description

20 Oct 2011
Throughout recorded history Yorkshire has been a setting for warfare of all kinds - marches, skirmishes and raids, pitched battles and sieges. And it is the sieges of the Civil War period - which often receive less attention than other forms of combat - that are the focus of David Cooke's new history. Hull, York, Pontefract, Knaresborough, Sandal, Scarborough, Helmsley, Bolton, Skipton - all witnessed notable sieges during the bloody uncertain years of the Civil Wars. His vivid reconstructions allow the reader to visit the castles and towns where sieges took place and stand on the ground where blood was spilt for the cause - for king or Parliament. Using contemporary accounts and a wealth of maps and illustrations, his book allows the reader to follow the course of each siege and sets each operation in the context of the Civil Wars in the North.

Product Description

Review

There are many books about the period of the Civil Wars in England between 1640 and 1651. There are also several works on the course of this war in Yorkshire. David Cooke a military historian, has concentrated on 9 sieges in Yorkshire by both sides, showing the aims, events and outcomes. He has written many previous books on conflict in Yorkshire and this is a worth addition. This book is extremely well researched, with many illustrations and photographs. - Local History Magazine --Local History Magazine
