A brilliant Book by a brilliant author, there's a fair few typos, and dates that get confused in places, but David Cooke brings a breath of fresh air to the English Civil War, a subject that's been dominated by authors who are unbiased, and write like the old fuddy-duddys they are. The book adds to what Cooke already covers in his "The Civil War In Yorkshire", expanding on the sieges.
My only issue with it is there seems to be a lot more coverage on the Siege of Pontefract than the other Sieges he mentions within the book, this is my own speculation now, but I think this may be his favorite siege, or it may be to do with the extensive notes available on that siege by the defending commander.
Personally I wouldn't pay the amazon standard for it; get it new from another seller or used. It's not essential, rather a good addition to have. Definitely go for "The Civil War in Yorkshire" by David Cooke first.
A first class account of sieges in the North of England during the civil wars. Throws light on an aspect of the wars often forgotten by historians. Of use to general readers interested in military history and academics alike.
