Scots Armies of the English Civil Wars

Scots Armies of the English Civil Wars Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the summer of 1642 the First Civil War between king and parliament had broken out in England. Initially both sides were confident of victory, but after the first campaigns ended in stalemate they began looking for allies. The meddling of the Stuart Kings with Scotland's religious traditions provoked the National Covenant, and later the Solemn League and Covenant. Yet many Scots continued to support the King, and after his execution, his exiled son.This fine text by Stuart Reid examines the Scots armies who fought in the English Civil Wars (1642-1651), and features numerous illustrations and photographs, including full page colour plates by Graham Turner.

Synopsis:

The National Covenant of 1638 bound the Scots to oppose moves initiated by Charles I to bring the Scottish Church and Legal system into line, and by extension to oppose the King himself. As Charles very quickly discovered the Scots Army as a whole was not a factional force, but the national army, obedient to the Scots government of the day whatever its political complexion. This title covers the arms, equipment and organization of these armies and their Royalist counterparts.

Synopsis:

This volume deals with the arms, equipment and organisation of the little-known Scots armies involved in the English Civil Wars, including the armies of the Marquis of Montrose and the Scots armies that fought against Oliver Cromwell.
