Welcome to my Blog on Practical Military History, a new approach to Military History.
Just what I mean by Practical Military History is explained in the article of that title. Other articles and blogs will be exploring that approach to military history. Don’t expect ‘old military history’, narrative accounts, or ‘new military history’, studies of armies as institutions. However, I hope that what you find here will help with understanding what happens in battle.

I should add that I will be concentrating, initially, on the period from the English Civil War up to the end of the Seven Years War. In time I hope to expand that to 1815.

To find the articles, simply select from the menu on the left, or put your cursor on the word Articles at the top of the page, there is a drop down menu.
