Product Description

Review

'The best narrative historian writing in the English language.' --Lawrence Stone, New York Review of Books

'Her gifts are splendid and altogether exceptional. She is a great craftswoman and a great writer.' --Sir John Plumb

'Most distinguished, [she] is the dream of the history fan. A scholar of unimpeachable diligence and accuracy, she also possesses the double literary gift of lucid exposition and brilliant portrayal.' --The Chicago Sunday Tribune

About the Author

C.V. Wedgwood (1910-1997) was a noted British historian and expert on the English Civil Wars, as well as a successful lecturer and broadcaster. She was created a DBE in 1968, and in 1969 became the third woman to be appointed a member of the British Order of Merit. Her biography 'William the Silent' was awarded the 1944 James Tait Black Memorial Prize and her iconic 'The Thirty Years War' remains in print over 70 years after first publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars Allows You To Watch Events Unfold 19 Nov. 2012
By Carol Small - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As with all gripping history books, this concentrates on a short period (about a month) and a focussed topic (the trial of Charles I for treason). Wedgewood peels back the underlying motives for the participants (in so far as it is ever possible to do so) and recounts the story in such a way that you feel it is being played out in real time. She portrays wonderfully the confusion of that month; and you realise that the condemnation and execution of Charles was by no means a foregone conclusion - despite the very determined efforts of the Independents to make it so.

This is the book that I always give as a present to those friends who "don't like history because it is dry and boring".
