Product description:
Half of the seventeenth century was one of the most explosive periods of history the British Isles. In England, a desperate king fought bitterly against his defiant Parliament; in Scotland, the religious upheaval provoked invasions from the north; and in Ireland, an oppressive regime led to a total Catholic rebellion. In this magazine, we explored how all these events, and more, combined to form the British Civil Wars, from the political machinations of Parliament to the bloody battlefield clashes at Edgehill, Naseby and Marston Moor. We follow the meteoric rise of Oliver Cromwell and his New Model Army, as well as the tragic decline of Charles I, a king executed by his own subjects. We also investigated how countries transformed into the Interregnum period, for better or for worse, before taking a look at how the monarchy made a surprisingly peaceful return during the Restoration. Whether you are an enthusiastic beginner or an experienced history buff, there are a host of expert features, illustrated battle maps and excellent images for you within these pages. With: Kingdoms at war: explore the turbulent political scenes in England, Scotland and Ireland that sowed the seeds of war. King vs. Parliament – Naseby, Marston Moor and the execution of Charles I – experience the brutality of civil wars. The reign of Cromwell: discover how some prospered and others suffered under the authoritarian rule of the Lord Protector. Road to restoration: follow the political machinations that overthrew the Protectorate and restored the British monarchy.
