Format: Paperback
From the Author's Preface:
"Did an `English art of war' exist during the century that preceded the civil wars of 1642-9? When Englishmen fought Englishmen at Edgehill (October 1642), how expert were they in the practice of arms? Were Tudor and early Stuart English soldiers inferior to their continental counterparts? This book examines English land warfare from 1511 to 1642, blending narrative with thematic exploration of topics such as the military obligation and logistics."

The Contents are -
P001: The Early Tudor art of war on the Continent
P021: The Early Tudor art of war in the British Isles
P050: The defence of the shire: lieutenancy
P082: The defence of the realm: impressments and mobilisation
P114: Elizabethan Warfare in the North, 1560-73
P137: Elizabethan Warfare in the Netherlands, 1572-92
P154: Elizabethan and Jacobean allied operations on the continent, 1587-1622
P181: Ordnance and logistics, 1511-1642
P207: Hibernian Warfare under the Tudors, 1558-1601
P236: The Irish military establishment, 1603-42
P255: The Caroline art of war
P282: English warfare turned upon itself
P304: Notes
P363: Bibliographic Essay
P370: Index

From the Preface again:
"For all the controversies about, and criticisms of, English warfare that appeared in English print during the century and a half before 1642, debate raised the question of how to defend the realm. Diversity of English opinion stemmed from the varieties of continental military practices. What weapons, tactics and organisational frameworks best served England? England was not Europe.

Excellent book, a good high level account of English Warfare of the period. The sections on Warfare in Ireland were particularly illuminating.

HASH(0x98cdcd2c) out of 5 stars For anyone with serious interest in British military history 11 Jan. 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Deftly written by Mark Fissel (Professor of History at Augusta State University) and part of the Routledge "Warfare and History" series, English Warfare 1511-1642 is a scholarly, college-level analysis of military operations from the reign of Henry VIII to the start of the Civil War. Manuscript sources are the primary reference for reconstructing military expeditions, such as Henry VIII's battles in France, Scotland, and Ireland, and Elizabeth I's interventions after 1572. No detail is left unexamined of this fascinating and deadly era. English Warfare 1511-1642 is highly recommended for anyone with a serious interest in British military history.
