Arms and Armour of the English Civil Wars

...is the title of the latest in the Royal Armouries Arms and Armour Series.


This book is absolutely fantastic. Well illustrated throughout, using portraits and period illustrations to introduce each section, then copious colour photographs of artefacts from the RA collection.

Keith Dowen has penned not only an excellent primer to the period (if you are new to the Civil Wars) but also, a volume that a seasoned Civil War enthusiast would benefit from too.

This is how an arms and armour book should be, take note Osprey and Helion!

Available now from the RA museum shops or their online store. Remember you can always save the postage costs by picking it up in person, if you do you might as well have a look around whilst you are there. Be rude not to.

Also available on Amazon from 1st April.

Arms and Armour of the English Civil Wars K. Dowen, Royal Armouries Museums £12.99

Apologies to Mr Dowen, my autocorrect keeps turning him into a Mr Downton, all corrected now. (Must resist urge to wonder if he has a friend called Mr/Ms Abbey.)
