By the end of 1645, King Charles’ hopes were increasingly dependent on the Royalist heartland of the Welsh Marches and the tiny field army which Jacob Lord Astley was struggling to muster there. This book sets in context Astley’s campaign which ended on 21 March 1646 with his defeat at Stow-on-the-Wold – the last pitched battle of the First Civil War.
