ISBN: 1841767662
Osprey Publishing Ltd Oxford, United Kingdom 2005 
 Soft Cover New book, 48 pages, NVG108, 8 pages of colour illustrations, many B&W illustrations. At the beginning of the English Civil War it was clear that artillery was to play a significant part in the conflict, as so many battles were fought by siege. Both Royalists and Parliamentarians raced to capture ordnance stores in urban areas such as London and Hull, realising that they would prove strategically decisive in the siege warfare that later developed. Illustrated with superb colour plates by Brian Delf, this book gives the reader an overview of the types of weapon used in this conflict and, more generally, how artillery was actually used in the seventeenth century. Contents: Parlimentary Trains, Royalist Trains, Types of artillery Drill, Tactics, Battlefield effectiveness, Glossary, Bibliography, Colour plate commentary.  As New
