King Charles' disaster in the North. The Battle of Marston Moor on July 2nd 1644 was one of the most important of the entire English Civil War. It was here that a force of some 27,000 Parliamentarians and Scottish troops routed an army of just 18,000 Royalists. Crucially the Royalist stronghold of York was lost and King Charles' cause in the north virtually collapsed. It was a defeat from which the king would never recover. Featuring spectacular battle reconstruction footage and dramatised 'eye-witness' accounts, this DVD tells the powerful story of one of English history's greatest military engagements.
