Memoirs of a Cavalier Daniel Defoe

Or -
 A Military Journal of the Wars in Germany, and the Wars in England. From the Years 1632 to 1648. Written threescore years ago, by an English gentleman, who served first in the army of Gustavus Adolphus, the Glorious King of Sweden, till his death, and after that in the Royal Army of King Charles the First, from the beginning of the Rebellion to the end of the War.

This is Defoe's fictionalized history of the war taken from accounts from a number of sources. Read it here

OK I just realised I have already posted on this subject before on this blog here but it is worth checking out for the comment on the sources Defoe used for his tale.
