Description

England has been fought over for centuries, by invaders and in civil wars. The sites of these desperate struggles are as varied as the reasons they were fought over, be they fields, towns, or fortresses, by land, sea, or air. These haunted acres are places of commemoration, memory and, above all, history. Bylooking atthem like any other form of historical evidence, much can be learned about the events which took place there. In this ground-breaking volume covering over 500 battlefields, Michael Rayner unravels these various strands and weaves them back together to give clear, concise accounts of the battles which shaped England."show more

Review quote

"This painstaking survey of English battlefields not only makes good use of primary sources, but pays proper attention to the ground on which the fighting took place. In doing so it expunges myths, illuminates facts, and puts these haunted acres into their proper context. A first-rate book"show more
