Written to mark the 350th anniversary of the death of Charles I on January 27 1649, this book recounts in detail the events leading to the fateful day, from the King's tribulation in the months before the trial, though the trial itself to the gruesome course and aftermath of the execution. It considers the aims and motives of his powerful enemies, men who were as certain in their own convictions as the King was in his. It explores the mysterious identities of the heavily disguised headsman and his assistant. It questions why the king had to die at all, and outlines what later became of those who shared responsibility for the death.

From Booklist:

King Charles I of England and Scotland hardly fits the mold of a heroic martyr. He was rigid, humorless, and lacked the vision to guide the inexorable tide of parliamentary reform. Yet, he faced imprisonment and execution with admirable dignity, and his comportment inspired royalist sympathizers as they waited out Cromwell's Commonwealth. To mark the 350th anniversary of Charles I's execution, Edwards has provided a compact yet thorough recounting of the Civil War and the events that led to Charles' doom. As the focus of this narrative, Charles often seems a hapless, clueless victim of forces he is incapable of understanding. This is a well-written and highly informative general account of a critical episode in British history. Jay Freeman
