Book Launch : Arundel at War 1642 – 1644 by Rosemary Hagedorn

THE FIRST IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THE ARUNDEL CAMPAIGN, ONE OF THE FORGOTTEN EPISODES OF THE ENGLISH CIVIL WAR.

Between Autumn 1642 and January 1644, Arundel Castle changed hands four times. Its eventual surrender, following a gruelling 18 day siege had local and national impact.

Arundel at War presents an enthralling story of combat, courage and endurance in which two friends, Ralph Hopton, ardent Royalist, and William Waller, committed Parliamentarian, were thrown into direct conflict as opposing Generals.

Using full-colour maps, photographs and engravings, together with extracts and eye-witness accounts, this lively piece of historical detective work takes the reader into the heart of the action.
