Brilliant introduction to the subject
9 January 2019
If there is one signal feature of the period 1640-1660 it is the complexity of those forces which brought the country to war with itself. Blair Worden's authoritative survey of the key issues,events and personalities is an excellent introduction to the subject. The narrative that he presents is both coherent and accessible without plunging into befuddling minutiae at any point. An inspirational read for anyone wishing to pursue a deeper knowledge of the conflict.
