Essex at War Through Time

Availability: In stock

Author: Michael Foley

Essex has been at the centre of conflict since the earliest days of recorded history. Michael Foley's carefully selected images and factual captions take the reader through the turbulent times of the Romans, (when the Iceni tribe slaughtered the invaders at Colchester), through to the times of William the Conqueror and to the later gathering of troops at Tilbury to fight the Spanish Armada and the war with Napoleon. Colchester, Warley and Purfleet all feature, being the locations of both tented, temporary camps as well as sturdy barracks, which were to last until modern times. These housed the brave military men of Essex who, throughout the ages, have helped to protect the country both at home and around the world.
