We are delighted to announce the reprinting in paperback of the popular 2014 title Campaign journals of the Elizabethan Irish wars, edited by David Edwards, which has been out of print for several years.
This edition gathers together 19 journals of military campaigns in Ireland during the reign of Elizabeth I. They record military operations by crown forces in all four provinces, on land and at sea. The journals cover every aspect of the fighting, from preparation to the often bloody aftermath, and offer unique insights of the Tudor conquest and how it was experienced by those who took part. These important historical sources are reproduced in full and they demonstrate the importance of record-keeping for Elizabeth’s commanders, and the central role of soldiering in their sense of themselves and their place in history.
