Following on from the success of the first book in this series on the English Civil war, Naseby, here is the story of Marston Moor, arguably the most famous battle in the four year conflict.

In this exciting analysis of the battle the Author has captured the atmosphere and made it possible to get the most out of the experience. Marston Moor was an extremely bitter and costly battle and a defeat for the Royalist cause that had major implications for King Charles I. One result was that the key city of York was lost thereby seriously weakening the King's grip on the North.

David Clark has enjoyed a successful and rewarding career in the field of chemical engineering. He is a registered professional engineer and specializes in the application of inherently safter processing (ISP), in process hazards analysis, and in catastrophic event risk assessment. He has presented and published numerous technical papers related to these topics. He has a passion for thinking outside of this technical "box" as well as for thinking inside it. He is an admitted closet poet, one who has never written a poem worth publishing but one who still writes them; a happy reader of Shakespeare (but only from editions with the explanatory notes in the margins) and of Goncharov and Turgenev; and an avid fan of home sports' teams (but only when they are winning). In the end however there is nothing exceptionally unique in him. He is a family man with a loving and deeply loved wife, Nancy, and with children and grandchildren that just 'make his day.' This is his first attempt at writing, illustrating, and/or publishing a children's book.
