Description
During the English Civil War, women played a perhaps surprisingly active and important role in the war between king and Parliament, and the author of The Young Elizabeth here reveals accounts from both sides of the conflict. From Mary Bankes, who held Corfe Castle for the king by heaving stones and hot embers over the battlements at the opposition, to the oyster wenches of London who labored beside the men as trenches were dug around the city, Alison Plowden illustrates how the conflict unfolded, how it affected the lives of women of all classes, and how they coped with unfamiliar or frightening responsibilities, loss and bereavement, divided families, exile, and financial ruin.

"Readers will enjoy Plowden's combination of a fine gift for storytelling with sound research and an infectious affection for her troop of intrepid ladies."—Miranda Seymour
