5.0 out of 5 stars Seminal History, 11 Oct 2007
This review is from: The King's War, 1641-47 (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
Wedgwood's England of the Civil War is the one that remains foremost in my imagination for that period. There are undoubtedly better military histories, political histories or local histories; but I doubt any produce so fine an overview as this book.

Unashamedly narrative history with a strong eye to the individual characters of the war this is an old book that one can keep reading. As well as analysis there is plenty of drama and even tragedy; I think especially of her description of Prince Rupert riding towards York, not knowing that he was never again to experience victory.
