This issue, we’re giving away three copies of Arms and Armour of the English Civil Wars.

The English Civil Wars tore families and friendships apart, setting father against son and brother against brother. Raging across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, the conflict was the greatest political upheaval in the British Isles in 600 years, and led directly to the execution of King Charles I in 1649.

Keith Dowen tells the absorbing story of the arms and armour of the Civil Wars, and explains how emerging weaponry contributed to some of the best-known battles in British history.

Read in vivid detail about the armour, muskets, pistols, rapiers, carbines, buff coats, and many other pieces of weaponry, equipment, and protective clothing used by both Royalists and Parliamentarians in this bitter 17th-century conflict.
