WANTON TROOPERS Buckinghamshire in the Civil Wars 1640-1660

£25.00 £4.99

None of the best-known battles or sieges took place in Buckinghamshire, but there was destructive combat in the county on a smaller scale because its location placed it on the front line between the opposing forces – between the royalist headquarters at Oxford and the parliamentarian stronghold of London. As Ian Beckett shows, the impact of war on Bucks was considerable. His analysis gives us an insight into the experience of local communities and the county as a whole – and it reveals much about the experience of the conflict across the country.
