… Warfare in the East Anglian and Western Rebellions (1549)

"This chapter offers a much-needed reassessment of the 1549 ‘Commotion Time', which considers the summer's major revolts in Norfolk, Devon, and Cornwall as military events rather than civil policing actions. The chapter uses narrative accounts, correspondence, and official documents to challenge the long-standing view that poor-quality rebel bands posed little threat to loyalist armies. Instead, Hodgkins suggests that insurgents combined locally available military resources with irregular assets to good effect in both conventional and unconventional warfare. The chapter also examines the rebels' use of guerrilla strategy and tactics to oppose, and sometimes defeat, loyalist forces, and evaluates the means by which the risings were suppressed"
