In short a great book that will be going with me to Normandy next year. * Army Rumour Service *
This book is a valuable contribution to seventeenth century military history, and a fitting tribute to the brave men, whether royalist or parliamentarian, catholic or protestant, who took the redcoat of the English Brigade to the Iberian Peninsula a century or more before Wellington. * Battlefield Magazine *
