Condition: Very Good - in Good DJ. Heavily faded at the spine of the DJ. Text bright and tight.

From the cover: “The battles of the great Civil War of 1642-6 have received a deal of attention, but the sieges of the period have been largely neglected. In trying to plug the gap the authors were faced with a choice: to describe a large number of sieges briefly or a select few more fully. They chose the latter course, and illustrated a carefully chosen variety of types of siege operation.”

Size: 8¾" x 5½". Black boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 159 pages.
