Helion and Company are proud to announce the second Century of the Soldier conference. This year's conference is being supported by the Pike and Shot Society and once again we will be at Rowley's House, Chester University's education hub at the heart of historic Shrewsbury. We are delighted by the range and breadth of the papers that have been submitted and very proud that we have been able to recruit to the conference many of the historians and academics currently working within the field of Civil War military history. Many of the delegates will be publishing with Helion. It is intended that the day will offer a stimulating and informative environment, facilitating research and promoting interest in this most important and fascinating of wars in Britain's past. The theme of this year's conference is ‘Home and away- the British experience of war'. We shall also be launching new ground-breaking publications on the day with special introductory offers.
