9781843834038: 'The Furie of the Ordnance': Artillery in the English Civil Wars (Armour and Weapons)

The English Civil War has frequently been depicted as a struggle between Cavaliers and Roundheads in which technology played little part. The first-hand sources now tell us that this romantic picture is deeply flawed - revealing a reality of gunpowder, artillery, and a grinding struggle of siege and starvation.

As with naval warfare, developments in gun technology drastically changed land warfare in the years leading up to 1642. The Civil War was itself shaped largely by the availability of munitions. A failure to procure them in 1643 and 1644 - combined with abortive attempts on London - ultimately proved the downfall of the Royalists. Moreover a final move away from fortified local garrisons reshaped both the nature of warfare in England, and the country itself.

About the Author:

STEPHEN BULL is Curator of Military History and Archaeology, Lancashire Museums.

Review:

The book brings together the technical, the military, the industrial and the strategic, to provide a rounded account of a fascinating subject. It also acts as a powerful statement of the importance of military history in making sense of the bigger picture. --Cromwelliana

Scholars of British military history and weapon development will appreciate the detailed maps, chronology and extensive appendices. --Scitech Books

An excellently researched and well-written book with clearly explained argument and supporting evidence. --Casemate
