 The English Civil Wars AudioBook Summary

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

The political upheaval of the mid-17th century has no parallel in English history. Other events have changed the occupancy and the powers of the throne, but the conflict of 1640-60 was more dramatic: The monarchy and the House of Lords were abolished, to be replaced by a republic and military rule.

In this wonderfully listenable account, Blair Worden explores the events of this period and their origins – the war between King and Parliament, the execution of Charles I, Cromwell’s rule, and the Restoration – while aiming to reveal something more elusive: the motivations of contemporaries on both sides and the concerns of later generations.
