Very enjoyable book covering most aspects of English Civil War sieges. Most of the famous sieges are in here, Chester, Bristol, Drogheda, Newark etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect, 31 Dec 2012
A nice little book containing a lot of good information on the military history of the English Civil Wars. Unfortunately the campaigns in Ireland are not included and there are a large number of typos in the (kindle) text as well. Some of the numbers quoted for army strengths are at odds with primary sources and the author contradicts himself on a couple of occasions whilst also misinterpreting some of the primary text sources.
It is a good read and worth buying but not as accurate as it could be. The author also does a very good hatchet job on Sir Ralph Hopton who is portrayed as a blundering coward.
