The victory at Dunbar of Oliver Cromwell’s New Model Army over the Scots under David Leslie in 1650 merits a major place in the long succession of Anglo-Scottish battles. The Scots had brought Cromwell’s invading army to its knees, but Cromwell took the offensive and, in one of the great upsets of military history, the Scots army was routed.

The triumph secured Cromwell’s reputation as the outstanding general of the age and demonstrated the toughness and flair of the New Model Army he commanded. Peter Reese’s exciting account of this extraordinary battle is the first full-length study to be published.
