About the Author

Ian Gentles is the author of numerous articles on the New Model Army and the English Civil War.


"A masterly achievement, and renders all previous works on the creation and early years of the army obsolete." The Times "A meticulously researched book which will supersede all previous work on the New Model Army." Times Literary Supplement "The publication of Ian Gentles's account of the New Model Army is an event of major importance in civil war studies. His book is awesomely well researched. What emerges is a very fine work indeed." Economic History Review "... an outstanding teaching tool... an excellent survey of the army that won the civil war. The clarity of Gentles' prose, and his ability to make sense of a profoundly chaotic period, ensure that this reviewer's students will find the paperback on the required reading list next term."
