This was written in the late 19th century and is 'of its time'. I only read volume I but it is about the only book which gives a comprehensive coverage of the English (not British) military situation from the beginning until the formation of the New Model Army (which is exactly what I wanted). But he was really not happy with Elizabeth not taking the opportunity to establish a standing army.

Just think how that would have changed the course of "English" history.

But it was a very old book and mad
