"The letters of Nehemiah Wharton were written by a middle class Englishman who volunteered, along with thousands of other Londoners, to fight King Charles at the start of the English Civil War. They offer a unique insight into the reality of military life at the start of the war. This edition also contains a study of the whole Edgehill campaign and a detailed look at the smaller, but no less important, actions of it."
