£175.00 £65.00

Some three and a half centuries ago, Britain was convulsed by a series of civil wars. The names of its participants and major battles Oliver Cromwell and Charles I, Cavaliers and Roundheads, Edgehill and Dunbar are still well known today. These wars saw the introduction of medals as rewards for gallantry and campaign service. This book places these medals within the historical context of the times. Through the use of commentary and over 400 illustrations from the 17th through 19th centuries, we see the personages of the Civil War as did both their contemporaries and those closer in time to the events of the Civil War.
