Cavalier Generals: King Charles I & His Commanders in the English Civil War 1642-46
Pen and Sword, 30.09.2004 - 224 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.
