The English Civil Wars
on 24 August 2010
The book has been well researched by the author and it shows in the wealth of detail and facts. It is complex in the sense it is not casual reading and you have to dedicate time to read this book which will be rewarded as you begin to understand the politics and the wheeling and dealing that went on over almost 20 years. It does not go into detail about the actual battles themselves, so perhaps if that is what you want from this book you'd be dissapointed. However if you are wanting to find out the reasons and the background to these turbulent times in English history this is a definite for your collection. It is well written.
