Osprey's Campaign series brings the reader thorough yet concise accounts of the greatest bat-rles, campaigns, and operations of history. This superb volume covers Nieuwpoort in standard fashion, giving readers the full scope of the battle. It describes the background, commanders, armies, equipment, and events of the engagement.
