Barratt’s work has the immediacy and freshness of approach of someone who is not content with armchair study but has gone out and refought many of these battles for himself.

Cavaliers, a major new examination of the Royalist armies and their role in the Civil War, is the result of ten years research. It describes and analyses the organisation, recruitment, training, arms, equipment, tactics and performance of the Royalist armies and compares them to their Parliamentarian or Roundhead counterparts. There is coverage of some of the more notable and colourful figures among, the King’s officers, and the reasons for the Royalist defeat are also examined. It also details a variety of engagements, episodes and individuals illustrating different aspects of the Royalist armies at war. Making extensive use of contemporary source material and fully illustrated, this is an accessible and objective survey suitable for military historians, students, enthusiasts, re-enactors war-gamers and the general reader.
