Description

When Charles Stuart was crowned King of Scotland, Cromwell led the English army north to counter the threat he now posed. Their march on Edinburgh was opposed by Leslie's Scottish army who used guerrilla tactics to force them back as far as Dunbar. Battle ensued on 3 September 1650, and the Scots fought with great determination until Cromwell led his cavalry against their right wing. The Scots army crumbled from right to left, and was driven from the field. Leslie retreated and Cromwell captured Edinburgh, although the war continued for another year after this crushing English victory.

Author Biography

Stuart Reid, born in Aberdeen 1954, worked as a librarian and professional soldier before embarking on his writing career. His main focus of interest lies in the 18th and 19th centuries, partly because his ancestors served in the British Army and the East India Company, and fought at Culloden, Bunker Hill and even in the Texas Revolution. He has written several books for Osprey, including the highly acclaimed titles about King George's Army 1740-93 (Men-at-Arms 285, 289 and 292). Graham Tumer is a leading historical artist, specialising in the medieval period. He has illustrated numerous titles for Osprey, illustrating the dress of the 10th-century armies of the Caliphates, the action of bloody medieval battles and the daily life of the British Redcoat of the late 18th century. The son of the illustrator Michael Turner, Graham lives and works in Buckinghamshire, UK.
