From the introduction: By December 1643 the Royalist armies were pressing in around London. The victorious campaign that summer had led to Lord Hopton' s Army from the west country pushing through Hampshire and probing into Surrey and Sussex. Lack of supplies in the Downlands led Hopton to disperse his army into four garrisons. The Parliamentarians saw a chance, possibly their last to stem the tide. Contents include:

The Background to the Battle
The Storming of Alton
The storming of Arundel
The Royalist Army at Alton
The Royalist Army at Arundel

The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The cover has some minor scuffs, but the staple spine is intact, and all pages are clean, intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
