"Spring, Laurence 290p. v well ill. The army raised by Charles I in 1625 for his war against Spain and France is one of the best-documented armies of the early 17th century. Using archival and archaeological evidence the book covers the lives of the officers and men serving in the army. The author discusses how the men from England, Scotland and Ireland were recruited (as well as how they were clothed and what they ate, the medical care, and the tactics used by the army at this time).The second half of the book covers not only the expeditions to Cadiz, the Isle de Rhe and the siege of La Rochelle, but also their effect on an England who feared a Spanish (and later a French) invasion. Also covered are the campaigns of Count Ernest von Mansfeldt’s and Sir Charles Morgan’s armies at this time, which fought at Breda, Dessau Bridge and against the forces of the Holy Roman Empire."
