9780117012226: A Nation Under Siege: The Civil War in Wales 1642-48 (Cadw Theme)

Although the smoke and dust subsided long ago with the battle cries and sound of cannon-fire, Wales still bears the scars of the bloody civil war fought between king and parliament in the 1640s. Well over 30 castles throughout the principality saw military action at some stage of the war, and a number of walled towns, great houses and even churches were caught up in the conflict. Bullet-marked walls, ruined castles, and a peppering of soldiers' graves are just some of the physical remains which are all important in retelling and illustrating the history of this tragic conflict which engulfed the realm of King Charles I. But why did Wales go into battle for the royalist cause? How widespread was Welsh support for the king? What impact did the war have on the country? This book answers these pertinent questions, telling the exciting, and often sad, story of the war years in Wales. Military events are placed in context by looking at the background, reactions and doubts of the people.
