Product Description

About the Author

Jack Binns was born in Keighley in the West Riding of Yorkshire. He was educated at the local grammar school and at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge. Before taking early retirement in 1992, he taught history at Scarborough Sixth Form College. He is the author of many published articles on local history, particularly of the seventeenth century. Jack's books include: "A Place of Great Importance": Scarborough in the Civil Wars (Carnegie Publishing, Preston, 1996); The History of Scarborough (Blackthorn Press, Pickering, 2000); Yorkshire in the Civil Wars (Blackthorn Press, Pickering, 2004); Yorkshire in the Seventeenth Century (Blackthorn Press, Pickering, 2007) and Sir Hugh Cholmley of Whitby 1600-1657 (Blackthorn Press, Pickering 2008).

When not researching and writing history, Jacks enjoys playing crown green bowls and drinking red wine and real ales, though not all at the same time. He has lived in Scarborough for more than 45 years and is the acknowledged authority on the town's past. He is married and has one son and two granddaughters.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I found this an excellent book, well researched with an excellent balance maintained throughout between the opposing forces and their commanders.

The pace of the accounts of various battles, for instance the sprawling battle of Marston Moor, helps the reader to visualise the surprise attack, the difficult terrain with "whins and diches" encountered by Fairfax, the panic reaction from some of the Royalist officers, the rallying calls of Prince Rupert, bring the reader into the battle.

Jack Binns has the ability to describe clearly the reasons for the strategies employed by the opposing forces; to show the vital importance of Hull with its control of inland as well as coastal waters; its fortifications and , of course, its munitions. However, he does this in such a way that the reader is drawn in to the conflict and is carried along with the narrative.
He maintains throughout an impartiality giving details of honourable behaviour by participants on both sides................ and examples of less honourable conduct by both sides.

The references are listed at the end of each chapter and show very clearly what a huge amount of original research jack Binns has done prior to writing this extremely erudite and readable book.
