Cavalier Generals: King Charles I and His Commanders in the English Civil War, 1642-46

Front Cover
Pen & Sword Military, 2004 - History - 227 pages
Previous studies of the Royalist high command have concentrated largely upon a handful of notable individuals such as King Charles himself and Prince Rupert. In this ground-breaking study, John Barratt re-examines these key figures, but he also explores the careers and characters of some of the lesser-known, but equally able Royalist officers. These men played decisive roles in the war, but hitherto they have received little attention.
