Booklet published by Stuart Press, 36 pages. A5 size booklet (N6642)

From the introduction: The battle of Langport (July lOth, 1645) rather than the better known engagement fought a month previously at Naseby, probably marked the real end of any hope of a Royalist recovery in the First Civil War. It saw the effective destruction of the last major Royalist field army, and opened the way for Parliament's New Model Army to begin mopping up the King's remaining strongholds. Contents include:

The Campaign Begins
The Battle
The Armies
The Royalist Army
The Parliamentarian Army
Dress and Colours
Contemporary Accounts
Four Maps, including Strategic Situation June 28th 1645, The Langport Campaign 1645, Langport The Armies Deployed c.11am, and Langport The Parliamentarian Attack c.12.15am

The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs, but the staple spine is intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound. There is a small price sticker on the rear side cover.
