Product description

Review

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)

It is hard to imagine a better introduction to the subject (HISTORY TODAY)

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

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 (THE SPECTATOR)

An exemplary piece of popular history... opening up perhaps the most important national story to the nation, passionately retold yet unadorned ... If you want to be informed about that unfortunate period of English history, Blair Worden's crisp 160-pager may well be the best place to start (Nicholas Bagnal SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

Book Description

A brilliant appraisal of the Civil War and its long-term consequences, by an acclaimed historian.
