RECONSTRUCTING THE NEW MODEL ARMY: Volume 1 - Regimental Lists April 1645 to May 1649

RECONSTRUCTING THE NEW MODEL ARMY: Volume 1 - Regimental Lists April 1645 to May 1649
by Wanklyn, Malcolm

1-209950

This book provides a full listing of the troop and company commanders who served in the New Model Army during the first four years of its existence. A second volume, to be published in 2016, will cover the final years of the army's existence.

This is the first comprehensive reconstruction of New Model Army's officer corps and it corrects numerous errors to be found in more general histories. It is fully indexed and referenced.

In part one, the data concerning the careers of troop and company commanders is presented in the form of snapshots of the army taken on six occasions between April 1645 and May 1649. However, the information to be found in the very extensive footnotes will enable the reader to create a highly accurate reconstruction of the names of the troop and company commanders at any date in that period.

In part two, a similar exercise is conducted with respect to the junior commissioned officers. In their case the surviving documentary evidence makes a complete reconstruction impossible. It is, however, important that their names are recorded as considerable numbers went on to serve as troop and company commanders, and indeed field officers and colonels, during the last 10 years of the New Model Army s existence.

In appendix one, regimental lists are presented for the first time of the Earl of Essex's army at the time of its incorporation into the New Model Army, thus complementing the work of Laurence Spring on the New Model's other two progenitors, the armies of the Earl of Manchester and Sir William Waller.

The book is not a new history of the New Model Army, but it does include chapters on topics that are not addressed head-on in Ian Gentles, The New Model Army 1645-1653 (1992). One examines the extent to which the New Model Army was an English Army, an issue first raised by Mark Stoyle in Soldiers and Strangers (Yale, 2005). Another discusses the positions held by the officers before they became troop or company commanders in the New Model Army, and the effect this may have had on their subsequent military careers. A third explores the circumstances under which officers left the army in the period 1645-1649, whist a fourth questions the notion of pinning numbers to the New Model Army regiments as was the practice in the British Army of the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
