However, when Rupert met the allied army in battle on Marston Moor on 2 July his cavalry was defeated by Cromwell's Ironsides who then turned on the Royalist infantry. The result was a hard-fought, but catastrophic defeat. The Royalist army was crushed and their forces driven from the north of England."@en ;
