Booklet published by Stuart Press, 34 pages. A5 size booklet (N6618X1)

From the introduction: During the morning of Monday May 8th 1648 approximately 11,000 men fought in the fields near the small village of St. Fagans. Today the village is almost one with the City of Cardiff and houses the Museum of Welsh Life. From the Tudor and Stuart houses in this collection you can see some of the fields in which this conflict was fought. It was possibly the largest battle ever to be fought on Welsh soil. This Parliamentarian victory was important enough for a day of public thanksgiving to be ordered in London. Yet today few have heard of it. Most history books on the English Civil War may give the battle a few lines and the locals know some of the traditions but few of the facts. Unfortunately there are only a few facts. The existing accounts were written by Parliamentarians and although broadly agreeing with each other, include little local knowledge of the ground to help pinpoint the exact location. Without the other side of the story much has to be taken at face value or worked out by common sense....

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.
