In March 1642 King Charles I, believing that Parliament had gone too far when it issued the Grand Remonstrace, moved to arrest John Pym and four other leaders. That summer Parliament, fearing military action, tried to seize control of the army by issuing orders for soldiers to report to Parliamentary, rather than royal, representatives. The King countered by ordering the bill ignored and raised his own army. Some turned out for the King, some for Parliament, and so the war started. This book examines how the cavalry soldiers of 1642 expected to fight the Civil Wars, and how experience changed their ideas.

About the Author:

John Tincey was born in 1955 and educated in London. He graduated from Leicester University in 1977 with a degree in history and is currently employed by one of the major clearing banks. He specialises in all aspects of military history of the late 16th and 17th centuries and frequently contributes to historical and military magazines, as well as lecturing on the development of the art of war. His published works include a story of the London Militia during the English Civil War and a facsimile reprint of one of the original drill books in his collection.

Angus McBride is one of the world's most respected historical illustrators, and has contributed to more than 70 Osprey titles in the past three decades. Born in 1931 of Highland parents but orphaned as a child, he was educated at Canterbury Cathedral Choir School. He worked in advertising agencies from 1947, and after national service, emigrated to South Africa. He now lives and works in Cape Town.

From the Back Cover:

This book examines how the soldiers of 1642 expected to fight the Civil Wars; and how experience changed their ideas. The colour plates that appear in this book challenge many preconceived ideas.
