German bombs and English cannonballs - twice during its proud history the port of Plymouth has resolutely stood firm as the horror of war rained down upon its streets.
The World War II Blitz has been well documented, however the same cannot be said of the city's siege, 300 years earlier, during the English Civil War - until now! Plymouth's Forgotten War is the result of many years of painstaking research.
The build-up to war, both locally and nationally; the major battles and skirmishes in the southwest; the political and social aspects of the conflict; biographies of many of the major participants during and after the hostilities; relics that can still be found today; maps and illustrations; a complete and precise record of Plymouth's stand in the great rebellion, when its brave citizens stood alone against the Royalist forces.
