Reviews

It was a time of great bitterness and hatred in Britain a war that set father against son and brother against brother. The breakdown in relations between a Parliament with a strong purpose and a King who believed in his divine right to rule set the scene for a series of brutal battles that were truly a struggle for the soul of a nation. The outcome of the English Civil War shaped the course of the nation's history and laid the foundations of the country as it is today. The second episode of 'The English Civil War' unravels the story of the early and middle phases of the conflict a period that saw fortunes fluctuate and opportunities come and go at the battles and sieges of Gloucester, Bristol, Newbury, and Marston Moor.

This 50min programme is second of a four part series, produced by the History of Warfare. Although it follows the standard format of this collection, blending re-inactments, period paintings/prints, buildings, battlefield views, expert analysis etc.... all bound together by a running commentary; I found the content rather deeper and more detailed than many similar programmes produced recently. Can easily be watched individually but is better when viewed as part of the entire series. I have no hesitation in recommending this particular programme/series as an excellent explanation of the political/military complexities of the English Civil War, which remains even today a crucial period of British history.
