The English Civil Wars: Medals, Historical

WITH FREE GENUINE CIVIL WAR PISTOL BALL

  CIVIL WAR BOOK e CIVIL WAR BOOK b

Some three and a half centuries ago, Britain was convulsed by a series of civil wars. The names of its participants and major battles "Oliver Cromwell and Charles I, Cavaliers and Roundheads, Edgehill and Dunbar" are still well known today. These wars (1642-1651) saw the introduction of medals as rewards for gallantry and campaign service. This book places these medals within the historical context of the times. The wars also introduced the use of firearms en masse with a tactic called ‘Pike and Shot' to English soil. We've placed both of these 17th Century British 'innovations' on a single deal and we are now giving you the chance to own the two, for the old fashion price of only £69.50 including UK postage & handling charge! Don't miss out on this offer, stock is limited...

Two huge and impressive volumes with 808 A4 pages in full colour, bound in gilt embossed cloth and housed in a slipcase, weighing over 4kg! Packed with over 500 colour pictures of medals from the English Civil Wars 1642-1651.

Originally issued at £175 by Spink. Coincraft bought the last copies they had and now it is our holiday present to you. Our price, while they last, is just £69.50 including postage in the UK, a saving of over £105, plus you get a FREE Civil War Pistol Ball.

What a fantastic gift for someone or, better yet, a holiday present for yourself.

Packed with fascinating information and beautifully illustrated, this mammoth work brings back to life the history of the Civil Wars that gripped Britain between 1642-1651.
