Overview
-

• The first book to utilise the New Model Army contracts to understand the Army
• The first book to use the information from the Littlecote Collection
• A new update to Firth and a vital supplement to it using the sources to which Firth did not have access

In the last few years there have been many studies of the New Model Army's campaigns, its origins, its politics and even its political beliefs. However there has been no full-length study of the military aspects of the New Model Army since that by C H Firth in the last years of the 19th Century!

Using up to date research the author looks at the military aspects of England's first standing Army. How it was organised, armed, uniformed and equipped; how it was drilled, organized and fought, what its flags looked like and who commanded it.

An invaluable guide for historians, reenactors and wargamers.
