Charles II's escape after the Battle of Worcester in 1651 is an extraordinary tale of adventure and suspense. This new edition of Ollard's classic book vividly reconstructs the six weeks during which the King was on the run. His great determination and good humour through it all won the admiration of many who risked their lives to aid him. Tremendously readable, fast-paced and a fascinating view of life in seventeenth-century England.

Review:

'A fascinating story. Mr Ollard has told it with admirable verve; he has drawn on innumerable sources; and he possesses a wry, detached humour, worthy of his principal subject' - Financial Times; 'Mr Ollard's fresh, compact and scholarly version is easily the best...' - J.P. Kenyon, Observer
