The Campaigns of Sir William Waller's Southern Association 1643-1645, by Laurence Spring

Booklet published by Stuart Press, 62 pages. A5 size booklet (N6624X1)

This is a brief description of the campaigns of Waller's army from his defeat at Roundway Down and the formation of the Southern Association to it being disbanded in April 1645. Where possible I have let the soldiers tell their own story, with only their spelling being corrected. Some of these accounts were written shortly after the event or for propaganda purposes. Colonel Birch's account seems have exaggerated his exploits and importance. Readers familiar with the Battle of Cheriton will notice I have used Adair's theory on the site of the battle, because from contemporary accounts it seems this site is more likely and later spread to the traditional site later in the afternoon. From the introduction:

The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The cover has one or two minor scuffs and blemishes, 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.
