9780297848882: The English Civil Wars: 1640-1660 (Universal History)

One of the most renowned historians of the English Civil War has written a crisp and lucid narrative of the complicated events of 1640 to 1660—not just the war between King and Parliament of 1642-46 but the second civil war, the execution of King Charles I, the rule of Cromwell, and finally the restoration of the monarchy. Blair Worden gets behind the preoccupations of later generations and explains what contemporaries on both sides thought they were fighting for and against.

Review:

'An exemplary piece of popular history... opening up perhaps the most important national story to the nation, passionately retold yet unadorned'―SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

'Worden is a spellbinding writer... he skewers the myriad shifting issues with precision, his every sentence commanding respect for his measured judgment and the marvellous suppleness of his language'―DAILY EXPRESS

'Straightforward, stimulating and a joy to read... It makes you want to know more'―LITERARY REVIEW

'It is hard to imagine a better introduction to the subject'―HISTORY TODAY

'As an introduction to the English civil wars, Worden's book is peerless. Brief, though it is, it is a work of exceptionally large achievement'―SPECTATOR
