The Sixth in The Civil War Chronicles featuring Major Stryker - 'the Sharpe of the Civil War'
FORTY-SIX THOUSAND MEN
THE BIGGEST BATTLE OF THE AGE
2 July 1644. Five armies converge outside York. It will be a battle for honour, glory, and the fate of three kingdoms. And it will pit two great leaders - Oliver Cromwell and Prince Rupert - directly against one another for the first time. It is a day that will change the course of history.
Into the cannon fire and musket smoke marches Major Innocent Stryker, battle-scarred hero of the Royalist cause. He must not only lead his men through the bloody horror and outwit his Parliamentary enemies, but uncover foul treachery on his own side. He will need every shred of experience and determination to survive.
Marston Moor will be the decisive turning point in the British Civil Wars.
This is the thrilling and shocking story of that battle.

The author knows the Civil War inside out, he's got to the heart of it, and it's this mix of knowledge and enthusiasm that has ensnared me in his books . . . The Civil War Chronicles is an outstanding series - Marston Moor, for all its bleakness and violence, is the best. * For Winter Nights *
