Cavalier Generals: King Charles I and His Commanders in the English Civil War, 1642-46
Pen & Sword Military, 2004 - 227 Seiten
Previous studies of the Royalist high command have concentrated largely upon a handful of notable individuals such as King Charles himself and Prince Rupert. In this ground-breaking study, John Barratt re-examines these key figures, but he also explores the careers and characters of some of the lesser-known, but equally able Royalist officers. These men played decisive roles in the war, but hitherto they have received little attention. Among the extraordinary soldiers the author covers are Lord Astley, Prince Maurice, Lord Hopton, Lord Goring, Sir Richard Grenvile, the Marquis of Newcastle, Lord Wilmot and the Marquis of Montrose.
