9780198200819: Britain in Revolution: 1625-1660

This is the definitive history of the English Civil War, set in its full historical context from the accession of Charles I to the Restoration of Charles II. These were perhaps the most turbulent years of British history with reverberations down the centuries. Austin Woolrych captures the drama and the passion, the momentum of events and the force of contingency. He brilliantly interweaves the history of the three kingdoms and peoples, gripping the reader with the fast-paced yet always balanced story.

Review:

`Review from other book by this author carefully and meticulously researched; it argues cogently and
shrewdly . . . and it is beautifully written

'
Times Literary Supplement

`impeccably researched and admirably presented monograph on
the earlier climacteric of the English Revolution in the later 1640s
. . . There is so much to praise and so little to criticise here . . .
Here is a book that any historian could justly be proud to have
written.

'
Historical Association

`a book of meticulous scholarship which gives the soldiers the
consideration they so richly deserve.
'
Society for Army Historical Research

`Written with clarity and controlled enthusiasm, emphatically
scholarly but never ponderous, Soldiers and Statesmen is a work of
major importance.

`The author writes clearly and brings to his subject years of research, teaching and, most important, reflection ... readers wil be rewarded by Prof. Woolrych's clarity and understanding.'
Contemporary Review

`This book is a sure guide to mid-seventeenth-century Britain, and is unlikely to be rivaled for many years to come.'
Stephen K. Roberts, H-Albion, History of Parliament Trust, London

`the author writes clearly and brings to his subject years of research, teaching and, most important, reflection ... readers wil be rewarded by Prof. Woolrych's clarity and understanding.'
Contemporary Review

`The military history is particularly sharp, as might be expected from the author of some of the best studies to civil war battles. Perhaps the greatest strengths lie in Professor Woolrych's coverage of the political debates in the army in the late 1640s. Yet this is not to deny the strength
of the analysis of the republican years, and Cromwell's rule in particular is dealt with perceptively and very fairly.'
