New 2015 publication divided into six historical periods, each prefaced by an outline of the nature of contemporary warfare. This indispensible pocket guide to every significant battle site in Britain demonstrates how each battlefield bears witness to dramatic turning points in over 1,000 years of our colourful and fascinating history from the Roman occupation to Culloden. The battles within each period, presented in chronological order, are mainly grouped into campaigns where the action is described and illustrated with a sketch-map.
