With numerous maps and illustrations, James Scott Wheeler connects the strategic and tactical levels of war with political actions and reactions, and discusses how Britain and Ireland became battlegrounds in the 'war of three kingdoms'. The various stages of this period of turmoil are clearly demonstrated, right through to the execution of Charles I, the conquest of Catholic Ireland, and the eventual death of the English Republic, and provide students of history with an excellent addition to their studies.

About the Series

Warfare and History

This new series of single-authored books on war, warfare and society marks a major new publishing initiative in military history for undergraduate students. Covering the whole span of history, the series seeks to encourage works on the impact of war and the preparations for war on social, economic and political developments. The books will eschew the 'battles and generals' approach, and seek to place militarism in context.
