Recommended reading on the battle

These web pages are largely based on the information in Adair 1997 and in the English Heritage report. The English Heritage report provides by far the most detailed discussion of the battle. Significant plans of the possible deployments and action are given in Burne & Young, Adair, Smurthwaite and English Heritage, though none is wholly satisfactory. The deployments mapped in these web pages are broadly based on Adair.
