    Excellent book. Clearly describes the run-up to Naseby as well as the battle itself in easy, understandable terms. The archaeological aspects are excellent, helped a lot by the diagrams and images- Foard is the authority in battlefield archaeology in the UK. Recommended for historians, archaeologists, or people just interested in the Civil War and battles.

    Rarely do I find a book about the English Civil War like this. The temptation to impose a biased personality on the King is refreshingly avoided in favour of an analysis of the events. Now we are presented with the difficulties faced by both sides when responding to the contrasting advice/commands given to them. Grandiose claims of people's uprisings and republican revolution, feeding modern notions of radical political reform are pushed to the back as a military campaign unfolds in vivid meaningful detail. I have learnt much from this book none-the-least the benifits of focussing a battle book on a battle. A good parallel, to my mind, are the books about the Pacific campaigns in WWII; those that avoid the 'wicked' Japanese references or Godly heroism of the Americans, instead, considering luck factors and strategic considerations on both sides. Now we have a tangible reason for the King's decision to engage the New Model Army when he did. I strongly recommend anyone who has an interest in military campaigns and especially those who are tired of author propensity to impose a third person narrative on long gone personalities. When writing this, I have not reached the conclusion of the book and am only two thirds through.
