AbstractThis short paper explores the surviving sources which give information on minor operations - raids, skirmishes, ambushes, beating-up quarters and the like. In particular, it compares and contrasts the sources for two such minor operations - the skirmish at Myddle in Shropshire sometime in the autumn or winter of 1644-45 and the pursuit of the royalist Lord Forth, his carriage train and lifeguard shortly after the second battle of Newbury in October 1644 - and evaluates both their reliability and what they reveal about the nature of the civil war.
