0 Reviews
Oliver Cromwell is one of the best known but also most controversial figures in English History. The book contains much new research and some major surprises--particularly about his early life, his career as an M.P., and about his personal religion. These are distinguished contributors writing at the height of their powers, and their impressive contributions have been devised, and revised, to make for a tightly-integrated volume.
