This history of Cromwell's army, first published in 1940, provides a detailed survey of the many regiments and their officers, beginning with the raising of the Ironsides in 1642, which formed the nucleus of Cromwell's New Model Army. The two volumes examine the origins and history of the regiments, the careers and beliefs of their officers, the course of the Civil War, and the activities of the army outside Britain. The author has exploited contemporary sources to build up a composite portrait of the soldiers of the Civil War and the regiments in which they served. Designed as a reference work for all those interested in the English Civil Way, this will be of particular benefit to students and scholars of early modern British military history.
