Further Reading

Most books about the battle of Edgehill contain a few paragraphs detailing the battles of Brentford and Turnham Green, but the treatment is usually perfunctory.  The only published study of the battle of Brentford is   Chippendale’s -The Battle of Brentford (1991).  This is a solid account, but does not make use of all the sources.
