British Battles: The Front Lines of History in Colour Photographs

by IanDrury (Editor), KenGuest (Author), Denise Guest (Author)

Synopsis

This text brings the past to life with photographs of battles in British history, re-enacted by English Heritage and Historic Scotland . The written commentary describes what it was probably like to fight with sword, spear or musket from Hastings to Flodden, Naseby to Culloden. Historical eye witness accounts are complemented by the experience of modern re-enactors, investigating the past. Questions examined are: how far a soldier could march in medieval armour; what it was like to be a female camp follower in the army of Charles I, and how to aim a long bow to bring down a charging knight.
