Sub-titled 'From the Roman Occupation to Culloden', this marvellous book covers over 100 battles fought between AD84 and 1746, along with explanatory details of contemporary weapons and tactics. Each entry is a self-contained guide, an account of events leading up to the battle, a vivid description of the fighting itself, and an assessment of the short and long-term consequences. The book can also be read as a continuous narrative, surveying major battles, exploring over 1,000 years of colourful and fascinating history. It begins with the Dark Ages and Mons Graupius c.AD84, women at war, 1066, the early Middle Ages, Border wars, Tewkesbury and Barnet of 1471, the Tudors and Scotland, the campaigns of Montrose, the Civil Wars, the Jacobite Rebellions. It includes a very useful timeline with British battles in context, beginning with 55BC when Julius Caesar raids Britain, 1506 when Leonardo da Vinci completes Mona Lisa, 1600 when the East India Company was established, and 1660 when Pepys begins his diary and 1755 when Johnson publishes his Dictionary of the English Language. Into battle! 346pp in paperback with maps and 16 pages of black and white photos.
