The Concise Encyclopedia of the Revolutions and Wars of England, Scotland, and Ireland, 1639-1660 (Google eBook)
"The Concise Encyclopedia of the Revolutions and Wars of England, Scotland, and Ireland, 1639-1660 examines in great detail the key people, places, and events that occurred during the wars and revolutions between 1639 and 1660, focusing not only on the English Civil Wars, but also on the Commonwealth and Protectorate periods that followed, through the Restoration. Although similar sources tend to be limited to the English, Manganiello documents the large roles played by the Irish, Scots, and other Europeans. Biographies include military, religious, and political leaders, as well as sailors, writers, inventors, doctors, influential women, and rabble-rousers. Detailed accounts of battles and skirmishes with strategic and tactical maps are also provided, along with military terms and information on weapons, tactics, uniforms, and flags. Source documents, important political terms and definitions, and religious groups and sects that arose during the period are also presented." "With more than 500 maps, photographs, and illustrations, this massive resource combines a wealth of information not available in any other single source."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
