More About This Textbook

Overview

During the 1640s, the kingdoms ruled by Charles I - England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland - were gripped by a series of civil wars and conflicts which were, in part, distinct to each kingdom, but which also overlapped and inter-related, leading some British historians to portray them as a single 'British' conflict. The British Wars by Peter Gaunt offers a concise history of these wars, from the beginning of Charles I's travails with the Scots to the conclusion of the wars at the Battle of Worcester and the English conquest of Ireland and Scotland.
Providing a clear, concise and balanced account of events in England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland, this book

• explores the relationship between the three kingdoms
*looks at military, political and religious developments in each

• assesses whether the wars can be seen as a single 'British' conflict or should be viewed as a series of inter-related but essentially separate wars.

    Concise Study of the conflicts in the British Isle duing the mid 1600's.

    This books looks at what is generally termed the English Civil War as series of interactive conflicts affecting the three nations of the British Isles. Many previous works have looked at the English Civil War as the main event with some interaction bewtween Englnad and the other two countries, Scotland and Ireland. This one focuses on the causes, course and consequences of these series of events in each of the three elements of the Kingdom, Ireland, Scotland and England-Wales. The rebellions, violence and wars which broke out in this period in the seperate kingdoms were caused by problems unique to each of them as well as interaction between the three. If one is looking for a study focusing on the military aspects of these years, this is not the book you are looking for. Rather this one looks at the military events only in conjunction with relgious, political and other factors. It is not a book of battles and campaigns.
