Top Customer Reviews
This volume is no exception and therefore I feel sure that the reader will be delighted with the end result and possess a volume that will be invaluable if conducting further research into this particular battle - one of the decisive events in the Civil War, which resulted in Oliver Cromwell's New Model Army defeating the Scots on their home ground.
This is one of the first full-length histories on Dunbar to be published. It provides the reader with a useful insight of the lead up to the battle as well as a graphic account of the battle itself, the complex political background, key personalities and characters involved together with the structure of opposing armies. The readable narrative is backed up with several maps and a series of black and white photographs and period engravings. The excellent guide to the battlefield as it is today will be invaluable for the tourist and researcher, as will the very useful appendix which includes a list of the Scottish prisoners taken at Dunbar.
In summary, value for money and a must on your bookshelf if this period of history interests you.
