Overview

Grant's outstanding scholarship, his extraordinary depth of knowledge and his masterful text combine to produce a produce an authoritative study on the battles of the period.

Renaissance Warfare collects Grant's work on the subject, from the Battle of Flodden in 1513 to the Battle of Newburn Ford in 1640. The book contains remarkably detailed accounts of many key battles from the period including the Siege of Leith and Battle of Zutphen to the capture of Cadiz and the Battle in the Bay of Cezimbra. The historically defining strategies employed during these battles are explored throughout.

Originally published as part of the Cassell's Series British Battles on Land and Sea, this book includes the original engravings, and together with Mr. Grant's period text produces an absorbing account of the period through Victorian eyes.
