Product Description


[A] thorough, lucid and balanced account. (American Historical Review)

[a] fine and deeply researched study (Anthony Fletcher, History Today)

A very good book... written with an enviable lucidity and calm authority (John Morrill, Times Higher Education Supplement)

Donagan's War in England 1642-1649 is the first really systematic treatment of the military culture of the Civil War, seen from within: a study of what the war was like to live through for the men who did the fighting. It is likely to be definitive on these questions. (Michael Braddick, TLS)

About the Author

Barbara Donagan is an independent scholar at The Huntington, California.

Format: Paperback
This book looks at an aspect of the English Civil Wars that has not been covered in detail before.
It is well researched and well written.It throws an interesting perspective on the effect of the war on both the civilian as well as the military aspect.
A most interesting and easily read book that will appeal to both historians and the general reader who likes history

HASH(0x95ab8dec) out of 5 stars Wonderful monograph 29 Nov. 2014
By Anton Tomsinov - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Not a narrative of events, so good for any reader, both novice and a connoisseur. A great, thoroughly researched book in the vein of ‘war and society’. Very interesting thoughts.
