The author also traces the development of new defence systems that were developed by engineers such as De Gomme.
Описание: A special edition of an outstanding academic study Firth's 'Cromwell's Army' has long been recognised as an essential classic. It describes in detail the structure, formations, equipment and practices of the Parliamentarian Army as it fought in the English Civil War, Ireland and elsewhere, and also examines the English army prior to the Civil War and describes the creation of the New Model Army. What makes this edition of Firth special is that the author makes reference to the illustrations by Francis Grose, of clothing, equipment and drill of Cromwell's Army, that he was familiar with but which did not appear in the original editions of this book. For the first time this Leonaur edition includes Grose's illustrations in the text for easy reference by modern readers. The cornerstone of the Parliamentarian soldier's cause was a matter of faith and Leonaur has therefore also included in this edition two essential facsimiles, 'The Soldier's Pocket Bible' and 'The Soldier's Catechism, ' which were specially created for the men of the Parliamentarian Army. These elements combine with Firth's text to make this new edition a unique, comprehensive and academic volume that will be an invaluable addition to the libraries of students of the period. Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket; our hardbacks are cloth bound and feature gold foil lettering on their spines and fabric head and tail bands.
